Group DouehBeatte Harab ... LP
Sublime Frequencies, 2010. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $19.99
A Saharan stunner – hypnotic music from longtime Saharoui music masters Group Doueh – mixing traditional Moorish instruments with modern guitar and synth with transcendent beauty! It's the third set of music by the group we've seen from the great Sublime Frequencies label, and it's definitely the the cleanest sounding, but there's nothing here approaching gloss or convention, it's raw, emotionally resonant music that's probably their best on record. The instrumentation includes the tinidit (a 3-string lute), the ardin (a kora-like harp), the tbal (a clay drum) and kass (tea glasses) along with guitar and Korg synthesizer – and uber-passionate vocals. Honestly, every time we hear a Sublime Frequencies release we wonder if it's the best one yet, and Beatte Harab is another on that superior level! Includes "Kar Wazan Abyad", "Mawal Lakhaal", "Badbada", "Beatte Harab", "Waydana", "Yadanat Lamayma", "Kar Labyad Doueh" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Omar SouleymanHighway To Hassake – Folk & Pop Sounds Of Syria ... LP
Sublime Frequencies, Late 90s/Early 2000s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
An incredible look at Syrian singer Omar Souleyman – an artist who's only been recording for a decade and a half, but who's managed to issue over 500 albums on his own! Souleyman's got a style that's almost spontaneous at times – fast rhythms served up at really tremendous speed, topped with these wickedly-sharp keyboards that move equally quickly along with the groove! The vocals are fierce and frenetic too – sometimes almost shouted, at other times a bit more intimate – and the music has a wonderfully personal, urgent sort of quality. The collection's a great dip into the limitless catalog of Souleyman – and it features notes on the artist in English, as well as a few details on each song. Titles include "Leh Jani", "Jani", "Dabke 2001", "Arabic Dabke", "Atabat", "Jalsat Atabat", and "Toul Al Zeenah". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousMolam Thai Country Groove From Isan Vol 2 ... LP
Sublime Frequencies, 1970s/1980s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99
Hard to believe a genre as obscure as this would yield up enough material for another set – but this second volume's almost even more wonderful than the first! As before, the work here is all molam – a Laotian and Thai folk country music genre, but one with plenty of psychedelic touches too! The instrumentation often includes a lot of electric guitar – played in weird and wonderful ways that often get kind of echoey and exotic – usually with a sound that's older than the date of the material, and which ends up sounding even cooler because of the odd production used on the tunes. There's less folk or rural elements here than you'd expect – and most numbers come across like some of the non-dance tracks from Bollywood. 21 tracks in all including "Instrumental Lam Sing" by Kalasin, "Hak Beb Nang Thai" by Palatoni Songsim, "Lam Plern Chawiwan" by Chawiwan Damnoen, "Chun Cher" by P Promdan, "Raiteem Tarn" by Thong Thaithin Isan and lots more.

VariousPakistan – Folk & Pop Instrumentals 1966 to 1976 ... CD
Sublime Frequencies, New Copy ... About October 25, 2019
A wonderful batch of instrumental folk & pop sounds from 60s & 70s Pakistan – with more than a little bit of garage rock, surf pop, mod and beat influences – all anchored by regional folk sounds, strings and melodies! It was a fertile time in Pakistan for an influx of western styles to fuse with Middle Eastern tradition – electric guitars, sitars and woozy organs meld beautifully – making music that's groovy and fun while still feeling natural to the time and place. Includes tracks by The Panthers, The Mods, The Bugs, The Abstracts, The Fore Thoughts, The Blue Birds and more. Titles include "Malkaus" by The Panthers, "Spring Dance" by The Mods, "Aay Jays Theme" by The Aay Jays, "Pyar Ki Ik" by Nisar Bazmi, "Garba Dance" by The Mods, "The Khyber Twist" by Sohail Rana and more. Sublime sounds on Sublime Frequencies! CD

VariousRajasthan Street Music ... LP
Sublime Frequencies, 2014. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $19.99
Contemporary sounds from the Indian state of Rajasthan – but music that has a really timeless feel overall, and a carefully unobtrusive style of recording! The tracks were all recorded on a recent journey to the northwestern corner of India, in search of unusual strands of indigenous folk music – and the sounds within will definitely expand your understanding past the basic tenants of more classical Indian music – and show that there's a heck of a lot of diversity within the nation's many regional areas. Rajasthan shares similar territory with Pakistan, and there's a slightly more eastern quality to the music here – including elements that you'd normally hear from cultures farther west, both in the rhythms and reed instruments. The notes do a great job of detailing each individual title and musician – much richer than usual for Sublime Frequencies – and the set really moves the label into key ethnographic space typically held by older labels like Folkways or Ocora. 19 tracks in all – and a really beautiful package!

VariousStaring Into The Sun – Ethiopian Tribal Music ... LP
Sublime Frequencies, Late 2000s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $19.99
Hypnotic Ethiopian field recordings on Sublime Frequencies – recorded in 2009 by Olivia Wyatt – raw and resonant tribal recordings that provide a fascinating aural journey to contemporary Ethiopia! This is a set that's as evocative as anything we've heard from the global gurus at Sublime Frequencies – which is saying something, because they always transport us straight to where they want us, with just the drop of a needle! Wyatt does a terrific job of detailing the different sounds of the different regions – the Azmari, Borana, Dirashe, Dorze, Gedeo, Konso, Mursi and Tsemay. The performances range from mostly voices and percussion, to busier traditional instrumentation – all of it crisply recorded and beautifully documented! Includes "Borana Singing Wells" by Borana Tribe, "Konso Lyre Song" by Konso Tribe, "Habesha Traditional Song 1" by Habesha 2000 Band, "Masinko Song" by Azmari, "Gedeo Vocals" by Gedeo Tribe, "Dorze Song" by Dorze Tribe and more. 15 recordings on 2LPs – with some great photos and notes in the gatefold.

✨✧ VariousBush Taxi Mali – Field Recordings From Mali ... LP
Sublime Frequencies, 1998. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The cover is a great illustration of the feel of this set – a mound of clay and earth, with a speaker set at the top – an image that really gets at the organic feel of the music inside! The set's one of the earlier recordings in the Sublime Frequencies lineage, and if offers up a great late 90s approach to Malian music – one that's much more up-close and personal than some of the bigger productions of the period. The sessions were recorded in a few different areas, with artists who include Amanita Diabate, Koman Diabate, Sidiki Kouyate, Lasan Tougara, and Kassemadi Kamissoko – all captured in a stripped-down style, but still with excellent sound quality. Titles include "Radio Bamako", "Autorail", "Sanan Kovya", "O Mansa Musa", "Dogon Country At Night", "Deni Meba", and "Segou". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Omar SouleymanJazeera Nights – Folk & Pop Sounds Of Syria ... LP
Sublime Frequencies, Mid 90s-2000s. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
The third collection of striking Syrian recordings from singer Omar Souleyman on Sublime Frequencies – and the label is 3 for 3 in fever inducing amazement for us – frenzied Arabic dance and party music from the mid 90s to late 00s! The material ranges from Syrian dabke to Iraqi choubi and influences of other Arabic, Kurdish and Turkish styles – a malange that's billed as a distillation of music that personifies Northeastern Syria and rarely heard in the west. We can't speak for the music culturally, but it's exciting at a purely visceral level to say the least! Uptempo grooves that's relatable to a world of contemporary and classic dancefloor styles that still feels purely Middle Eastern. Excellent stuff once again from Sublime Frequencies! The material was culled from cassette tapes and titles include ""Hafer Gabrak Bidi", "Li Raja Behawakom", "Dazeitlak Dezzelli", "Kabji Wa Bajji Il Hakar", "Ala Il Hanash Madgouga" and more.

✨✧ Baba Commandment & The Mandingo BandSiri Ba Kele ... CD
Sublime Frequencies, 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Rootsy grooves and heavy rhythms from Baba Commandant – an album recorded in Burkina Faso, and done with a nice blend of guitar, bass, and drums – plus plenty of work on balafon and n'goni! The steel tones of the n'goni ring out nicely next to the warmer percussive melody of the balafon – instantly setting up a pulse for each new song, which is filled in nicely with wider washes of sound from the guitar! Baba Commandant sings on most numbers, but also lets most of the tunes find their groove first – and titles include "Loga Fo Djelba", "Bobira", "Mantcha Mantcha", and "Siguisso". CD

✨✧ Omar SouleymanDabke 2020 – Folk & Pop Sounds Of Syria ... LP
Sublime Frequencies, Late 90s/2000s. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
A second collection of great stuff from Syrian vocalist Omar Souleyman put together by Sublime Frequences – straight up amazing stuff that combines Omar's often bursting, gritty vocals with sputtering low fi electronics and rhythms! Most of the tunes are boisterous Dabke party tunes, a few more minimalist, entrancing numbers, but for the most part this is fast moving, spacey but gritty Syrian and frenetic set of grooves! The tracks were recorded between 1999 and 2008, and the titles include "Atabat", "Lansob Sherek", "Shift Al Mani", "La Sidounak Sayyada", "Jamila", "Qalab An Nas", "Laqtuf Ward Min Khaddak" and "Kaset Hanzal".
