Daniel Jones (1912-1993) composed in a wide range of genres, yet the cornerstone of his prolific output is the Symphony, memorably described by him as ‘a dramatic structure with an emotive intention’. He tackled the form afresh with each of his 13 examples, of which the first 12 are based on a different note of the chromatic scale. Though each of his thirteen symphonies is a unique and highly personal statement, the cycle as a whole maintains an unwavering consistency of quality and vision. Daniel Jones demonstrates a steadfast integrity throughout, never bowing to the latest trends. His priority is always to communicate directly with the listener.

A collector's dream come true, Traditional Doom Cult contains two rare and unreleased tracks from Darkthrone's Fenriz under the Isengard banner, the iconic solo project of Darkthrone's Fenriz, which was active from the late 1980s to the mid-1990s. Tracks include The Light - an early song recorded in 1989 - and The Fright from the early 1990s. Both tracks bring to mind the doom-laden grooves (draped in darkness!) present on Isengard's debut release, Vinterskugge. The recordings were made at the legendary Necrohell studios with Fenriz responsible for all instruments and vocals.

Traditional Music of Notional Species Vol. II pays a return visit to the otherworldly noumenal ecosystem inside Rashad Becker's head, relaying indecipherable messages in something resembling an expressive language of psychoacoustic, cuneiform glyphs. No Rosetta Stone is required to comprehend these deeply abstract auditory tableaus; all you need is an open mind and functioning set of lugs for reception, whilst whatever counts for your sense of consciousness will fill in the gaps, and that’s where the “fun” starts.

The Laotian national instrument is the khène, typically an eighty centimeter (roughly a two and a half foot) long mouth organ constructed of seven or eight pairs of bamboo pipes that are connected with a small, hollowed-out hardwood reservoir into which air is blown. Its sound is similar to that of a violin, and it may be played as a solo instrument or to accompany singers and instrumental ensembles. The khène also occurs in a two meter (approximately six and a half foot) version, which few musicians have powerful enough lungs to master.
The khène can be heard on most of the tracks in this recording, which includes ritual music, wedding music, and songs such as "Lam Sithandone" sung by professional singers Thao and Nang Sikhone.

After two millennia under the Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman empires, not to mention musical invasions from the West, what remains of Greece’s early musical heritage? What can be called “Greek”? Although the origins of musical genres and systems identified with the country are often confused, misunderstood, and mislabeled, this 1970 collection provides fourteen vivid examples of vocal and instrumental music from mountain and island regions that have maintained the closest ties to ancient tradition.

The northern Vietnamese vocal song traditions of ca trù and quan họ are the focus of this recording. Ca trù, literally translated as “song with little tokens,” is a genre of Vietnamese chamber music sung only by female vocalists with instrumental accompaniment. Ca trù singing was inscribed on the UNESCO List of Intangible Cultural Heritage in Need of Urgent Safeguarding in 2009.
This 1976 recording was made in the Socialist Republic of Vietnam by noted musicologist Trần Văn Khê. The ca trù songs, including classics in the repertoire, are sung by Quach Thi Hô, one of only a small number of ca trù singers at the time.
Additional tracks are examples of quan họ songs. Quan họ is a genre that originated in Bac Ninh province (now called Ha Bac), about 30 kilometers from Hanoi. Sung by both men and women with instrumental accompaniment, the songs are passed orally from generation to generation.

In Iraq, maqam—a term referring to any one of the rhythmically complex and improvisational melodic modes of Arabic classical music, which dictate pitches, pattern, and song progression—is performed in three distinct regional styles by vocalists, instrumentalists, and mixed drum groups. This compilation of recordings by ethnomusicologist Habib Hassan Touma features various musical genres from Basra Province and Baghdad that provide a glimpse into the varied iqa’at (rhythmic forms) in traditional Iraqi music.
