Thirty Day Notice: Somewhere Between Pleasantly Hypnotic and Slightly Disturbing
Lana and Joe (sister and brother) write, perform, mix and produce Thirty Day Notice in their solar powered recording studio in Fiji. Both Lana and Joe are interested in ancient civilizations, secret societies, the soul, fringe science, the occult, aliens, mythology, symbolism, sacred geometry, conspiracy, consciousness, etc., which might explain their pleasant, yet unsettling, sound.

The Sarasa Ensemble: Lively, Bright Baroque
This beautiful recording presents two of Bach's cantatas for solo voice, one—Weichet nur—a celebratory wedding ode and the other his celebrated masterpiece for the Feast of the Purification of the Virgin. Internationally acclaimed mezzo-soprano Dominique Labelle and three time Grammy nominee Sanford Sylvan lend their incredible voices to the Sarasa Ensemble in order to depict both the idyllic, pagan landscape of the first work, and the luminous, "lullaby to the soul" of the second. A third work—Liebster Jesu—features a "sacred dialogue" between these two sublime voices, and the entire album makes clear why The Sarasa Ensemble is so often praised for its great clarity of style.
