  • New Releases, April 2012

    It's that time of the month again for the new releases show on New Sounds. John Schaefer carefully sorts through the stacks, bins, and towers of new CDs, records, and bandcamp sites which have come across his desk or into his email over the past month to present some choice cuts.  We hope to hear from Amadou & Miriam, BMOP and Evan Ziporyn, and the local Brooklyn outfit Choban Elektrik, as well as a host of other choice recordings.
