Sam Rosenthal - Before the Buildings Fell (1986)

Sam Rosenthal is the founder of Black Tape for a Blue Girl, a band whose brilliant, gothic, ethereal sorrow sometimes is compromised by dubiously enjoyable excursions into "sexy," quasi-Eastern themes. Before the Buildings Fell, an excellent instrumental solo album recorded in his college dorm room, is built on arpeggiating synths and the same type of drifting, narcotized sounds that he'd explore more fully with the formation of BTFABG less than a year after the album's release.
