Pure pop magic from the lovely Mina – a very weird little record in which she takes on a host of mid-period tracks by The Beatles! The sound is as offbeat as the cover's take on Revolver – kind of a cross between late 60s Beatles, and early 70s Italian – trippy at points, but kind of sweetly poppy at others. And we can't tell for sure from the notes, but the album appears as if it might collect tunes from a number of different periods – although it comes across with a very unified feel overall. Titles include "Let It Be", "Fool On The Hill", "She's Leaving Home", and "Hey Jude" – plus versions of "My Love" and "Oh Darling".

A newly reissued private-press curio from 1974 captures the bygone sounds of daily life in Portland, Oregon, in dreamy, proto-ambient form." Ernest Hood’s Neighborhoods was released some two decades after the Portland, Oregon born and raised musician’s first forays into field recordings. These very recordings, and those captured over intervening years, define the universal sound and aural images of childhood, a theme memorialized by Hood’s privately-pressed opus of 1975.

Sergey Prokofiev wrote Peter and the Wolf in 1936 when he attended the opening of the Moscow Children's Theater Center. He wanted the work to be educational and entertaining for children, so he took a well-known Russian folk tale and set the piece to music. Each of the story's main characters is represented by an orchestra instrument. To make it even more palatable for children, he used a narrator to make the whole experience more like listening to a story told with musical „images." Many well-known artists and actors have recorded the work.

The multi-media work Utp_ by the Japanese composer and pianist Ryuichi Sakamoto and the installation artist Carsten Nicolai aka Alva Noto was created in 2007 on the occasion of the 400-year anniversary of the city of Mannheim. Its world premiere was given by the Ensemble Modern at the National Theatre in Mannheim and combined images, acoustic sounds, electronics and improvisation. For the performance the music was accompanied by a visual score projecting computer-generated amorphous structures resulting from complex mathematical colour progressions. The work, whose title is deducted from the word “utopia,” consists in slow-paced tableaux of stretched out octaves and skeletal motives.

Released for the first time in 2011, Summvs is the fifth and final installment of Alva Noto and Ryuichi Sakamoto’s V.I.R.U.S. series. The title Summvs refers to the Latin word ‘summa’ (eng. sum) and ‘versus’ (eng. towards); it serves as a metaphor for the work being oriented towards a collaborative result. The album features Microon compositions containing recordings of a 16th tone interval tuning piano – Piano Metamorfoseador Carrillo en Dieciseisavos de Tono. The album also features two covers of the track By This River, composed by Brian Eno, Dieter Moebius, and Hans-Joachim Roedelius in 1977.

Hazel and Alice’s hard-edged, soulful harmonies were firmly rooted in the older music traditions of the rural South. Their steadfast devotion to their powerful, driving style inspired generations of women in bluegrass, country music, and even punk.

During the 1970s, Mícheál Ó Domhnaill was involved in some of the "most innovative projects and groups in Celtic music." After his first group, Skara Brae, disbanded in 1972, Ó Domhnaill travelled to Scotland where he collected Gaelic songs on the Islands of Lewis and Skye as part of his work with the School of Scottish studies. When he returned to Ireland, he collected and recorded songs in Donegal, many of which he found through his Aunt Neilli Ni Domhnaill, who possessed a large collection of local songs.
