The featured album was "989"  by  XIM  (Cube Roots).  The totally perplexing name of the band, the album and the label, as well as the enigmatic album sleeve 'notes', should not deter the adventurous.  The band members play melodeon, hurdy gurdy, flutes, bagpipes and persussion.  All original instrumentals and all fascinating - nearly a traditional style ... but not quite.
