      This time it's Sumatra's turn to show what they've got

      Folk and Pop Sounds of Sumatra Volume 1 is an album compiled and released on Sublime Frequencies. It's a variety of folk and pop music from Sumatra with a mixture of female, male and even children singers on different tracks, there's also an odd cockerel like noise appearing on Piso Somalim.

      I'm not particularly into every song but there's definitely a few tracks that I find quite quirky and intriguing and it has wet my appetite for Volume 2, which supposedly is better.


      Criticisms of this compilation could be appropriate for just about any Sublime Frequencies compilation - there's very little info on the bands and in some cases the bands and songs titles aren't even known, that's due to the rare nature of the songs - that they are just picked up from random locations. I'm not completely sure when these songs were compiled but I imagine most of them are from the 80s.

      It's unlikely you'll be able to pick up a copy of this because they are limited to 1000 but there's no harm in downloading it, since it's a bit of a glorified bootleg in the first place with money not actually going to the original artists as far as I'm aware.
