josh freda Rewind This! Original Score (180g vinyl LP, £19.95)label: Death Waltz Recording Co.
REWIND THIS! is a must-see documentary about the home video boom of the 1980s and the tape collectors obsessing, preserving and cataloguing the format today. Josh Freda’s incredible synth score perfectly captures all aspects of '80s videotape culture; an album full of music recalling cheesy action synth riffs, moody horror stings and neon drenched night time radios. This isn’t some hollow retro futuristic re-tread of the '80s, though, as Freda manages to inject so much personality and playfulness into his music that even through the barrage of synths in play it sounds ultra contemporary and very human indeed. Includes the lo-fi punk gem ‘Head Cleaner' by Joey Division as a bonus track, and the artwork is by the kickass Hollis Brown Thornton that we have been wanting to work with for an age.
