Stroom return to Latvia’s fertile ‘80s/‘90s avant-garde following their much-loved NSRD 12” + LP with a compilation of woozy, offbeat synth-pop and jazzy skronk partly made behind the Iron Curtain

Perhaps most covetable for the exquisite, futurist wave fancy of ‘Singapūras Vējš’, which appeared on 19 Gadi Pirms Sākuma’s debut tape in 1989 and more recently on the ‘Q/R’ compilation, the ’19 Years Before The Beginning’ compilation is peppered with slanted pop charms of a similar, etheric ilk and innocent urgency, such as the cubist electro-jazz scorn of ‘Nakts Ir Mana Zemapzina’, the YMO-esque glassy ‘tronics of ‘Die Wilde Frau’, and the swaggering, fruity electro of ‘Niknie Zvēri’.

““Sometimes our own creations surprised us,” says Inguna Rubene, flute player, guitarist, bassoonist and songwriter for 19 gadi pirms sākuma (19 Years Before the Beginning). Created with the idea of lasting for a single performance, 19 gadi pirms sākuma developed into one of the most delicate, intriguing groups in Latvia’s 1980s and early 1990s music scene. Formed in 1988, the band arrived at a time when the Soviet Union was showing the first signs of unravelling. Latvia remained an occupied country, but experimental audio and visual events organised by a generation of young artists started to challenge the boundaries of what could be allowed.
