VariousKwangkay – Funerary Music Of The Dayak Benuaq Of Borneo ... LP
Sublime Frequencies, 2011. New Copy ... $19.99
A other-worldly set of funeral music from Indonesia – sounds that are quite different than anything you'd ever hear in an American funeral home or church! The music is very earthy, and almost feels like witchcraft at time – with some sounds that echo the ringing bells and tones of gamelon music, but others that are almost electro-acoustic, even though generated from organic sources – a really weird mix of modes that almost puts the record somewhere in the sphere of 20th Century avant projects that tried to combine the modern with the primitive. Titles include "Nocturnal Soundscape", "Titi Mati", and two versions of a "Ngerangkau" dance. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousGuitars Of The Golden Triangle – Folk & Pop Music Of Myanmar Burma Vol 2 (2017 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Sublime Frequencies, 1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Unusual guitar sounds from Myanmar – all pulled from obscure cassette recordings, and presented here in a wonderful package that was maybe one of the first great compilations from the Sublime Frequencies label! The music is a compelling mix of east and west – slight exotic currents coming into play with more familiar electric guitars – in a way that echoes some of the better-known Southeast Asian material of the time – but often with some surprisingly wild guitar work! In fact, the guitars here are definitely the main draw – especially on some of the more trippy numbers – and titles include "Naung Ywe" by Kuhn Kan Chwain, "A Girl Among Girls" by Lashio Thein Aung, "Sequence 2" by Khn Paw Yann, "Hopes & Goals" by Khn Paw Yann, "Khin Kam" by Saing Saing Maw, "Moon" by Khun Hla Maung Law, and "Mistake Of A Small Bird" by Lashio Thein Aung.

✨✧ VariousIshq Ke Maare – Sufi Songs From Sindh & Punjab, Pakistan ... LP
Sublime Frequencies, 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Contemporary Sufi music from Pakistan – recorded in the field, but with a really beautiful sound – crystal-clear presentation of the hypnotic vocals, reed instruments, and percussion that really drive the performances! The song styles vary – so that some are heavily vocal, if not all performed by voice – while others have a driving rhythmic core, which seems to whip the singers into a frenzy, which is captured beautifully by the spontaneous quality of the recording. One track features an extended performance of the "murli been" – a really mindblowing reed instrument – and the package is part of a great new wave of ethnographic recordings from the Sublime Frequencies label.

✨✧ VariousWhere The Mountains Meet the Sky – Folk Music Of Ladakh ... LP
Sublime Frequencies, 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The title definitely gets the setting right – as the music here is from the Himalayas, where the high altitude seems to really produce something special in the culture! Many of these tracks have a spare, almost meditative feel – as a good deal of the music comes from spare pairings of stringed instrument and voice, percussion and reeds, or even just a solo instrument. A few longer passages have a fuller vibe – but still, there's a feel to most of the music that really makes you feel like you're on the edges of civilization. The music here comes from an archive of folkloric recordings from the radio station of Ladakh – documenting a culture that vanishes more and more as the years go on. Very well-done – in the recent Sublime Frequencies mode! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousMusic Of The Bahnar People From The Central Highlands Of Vietnam ... LP
Sublime Frequencies, 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Wonderfully weird sounds that are unlike anything we've ever heard from Vietnam before – music made by one of the nation's most ancient indigenous people, located in the country's central highlands – far removed from the culture of the cities! The instrumentation features familiar forces, but often used in different ways – such as a combination of bamboo fiddle with mouth resonator, or a zither made of bamboo – mixed with a few other songs on gongs, and others with acoustic guitar and vocals, but light years from any American folk. The set's got some helpful notes that briefly explain the different tracks – and the recording quality is excellent, especially on the "resonator" tracks, which may well be the highlights here. Titles include "Gong Playing In Funeral #2", "Bamboo Zither Song", "Blang Tree", "Bamboo Fiddle With Mouth Resonator Solo #2", "Bamboo Zither With Bowl Resonator", and "Bahnar Easter".
