The title Milano New Wave 2014 recalls Spittle's 2008 compilation Milano New Wave 1980-83, a document of a specific period of the very first wave scene of Milan. But this title is a very clear statement of intent -- The Evolution of an Underground Music Scene is the perfect subtitle for this collection, a kind of "how we are 30 years later," where you can find almost the same protagonists of the first wave. Forget any nostalgic thoughts or the idea of a reunion of friends, though, because the ten tunes that make up this collection are deeply immersed in today's Milan. The album's intent is fully epitomized in the works of State of Art, Out of Limbo, Sound of LLL, Ivories, and La Form, with their new wave, white funk, and 4AD-style baroque embroideries. The other protagonists choose other ways to spread the Milan's nouvelle vague: psychedelia for Peter Sellers & The Hollywood Party and electronic drives or Italo disco for Atelier Folie, ltaloconnection, Sigmatibet, and 2+2=5 featuring Trevor Finn. This compilation captures an urge to drive with the utmost care through an underground route started in 1980, consistently following the changes of a complicated metropolis like Milan. Pressed on transparent vinyl. Limited to 300 copies.
