Monica Rypma - Hey, Where You Goin! Uneven Paths: Deviant Pop From Europe, 1980-1991 is the second multiple artist compilation on Music From Memory and is compiled by record connoisseur Raphael Top-Secret and label man Jamie Tiller. The compilation brings together twenty one tracks from across the continent; exploring the more unusual and unexpected sides of Pop music produced during that period. The quality of the track list, the beauty of the album cover: it all speaks to an ephemera with enough gusto to attempt to escape time and exist in eternal and sidereal beauty.

OK. You are minutes away from monetizing your first tracks. Are you sure? It would mean no money!

The 1980s was a great decade for "deviant po. Commercially successful artists routinely went off-piste, indulging in strange B-sides and homespun solo albums that would later become firm favourites with Balearic DJ. Music From Memory's latest compilation surveys artists making DIY pop across Europe during the '80s, focusing on the side projects, one-offs and that exist in the footnotes of the decade's pop narrative. Uneven Paths: Deviant Pop From Europe 1980-1991 was put together by Music From Memory cofounder Jamie Tiller and the Paris-based digger Raphaël Top-Secret. The compilation spans 11 years and an entire continent, but it has a tight, coherent focus, mostly showcasing songs that are slow-tempo, arty and intimate, often with a folk, jazz-funk or boogie tinge

An array of peculiar pop fusions, fascinating detours, inconsequential blips, and woeful failures comprises the Amsterdam label Music From Memory’s latest compilation, Uneven Paths: Deviant Pop From Europe 1980 - 1991, which digs across the continent for square pegs and songs that briefly asked What if this could be pop? before dropping off the map. Last year’s Brazilian set Outro Tempo, which covered the same era, provided a similar sense of a parallel world.

Music From Memory Holland. Uneven Paths: Deviant Pop From Europe 1980-1991. Uneven Paths: Deviant Pop From Europe 1980-1991 (1 per customer). Music From Memory Holland. Uneven Paths offers a similar service to those interested in the eccentric, often inspired fringes of European pop music. Of course, compilers Jamie Tiller and Raphael Top-Secret are not interested in run-of-the-mill or commercial synth-pop, but rather "deviant pop" - melodious, left-of-centre curiosities that some may describe as "Balearic". This is pop music from the outer limits, where tracks variously draw influence from spoken word, global rhythms, post-punk fusion, jazz, new age ambient and kosmiche. It goes without saying that the crate-digging duo's selections.

You can buy it directly from the label if you want it on CD. It is not referenced on discogs, that's all...https://www.musicfrommemory.com/product/v-a-uneven-paths-deviant-pop-from-europe-1980-1991-2xcd
No cd? No MP3? Really! Not all of us consumers resort back to an inferior medium of listening to good music...would be nice to at least press this on a limited edition cd!

Pfft... You mean using a google search? To hell with that! Get real man. Everyone knows the internet is an inferior medium.
available in digital from bandcamp and boomkat, gotta look around sometimes
Music From Memory follows up last year's world-expanding "Outro Tempo" compilation with another absolute stunner. Perhaps not quite as revelatory merely by virtue of the sounds being less intrinsically foreign to Western ears, but there isn't a track out of place. Packed with diverse, angular grooves and hooks, and a top-quality pressing and package all-around. What are you waiting for?
What a beautiful record, nice one MFM! It would have been perfect if you would have put "Furniture - Why Are We In Love" it fits totally with all tracks in here.. And I have to admit that I desperately want this track on wax ;) Maybe next time? Thanks again for all emotions you bring in your releases every time!
in your opinon what would be another great additional track on this album?
Copies already available online via the MFM web shop http://www.musicfrommemory.com/product/v-a-uneven-paths-deviant-pop-from-europe-1980-1991
A masterclass compilation, beautiful picks, and in a single swoop clocks off a bunch of RTS gems I've got lying dormant in my wantlist (Seriously - Good luck trying to own even half these tracks individually). So excited.
This whole package is outstanding - sublime music and gorgeously designed. MFM have really outdone themselves this time, and that's saying something! Awesome to see Raphael Top Secret involved too.
