It's the most wonderful time of the month!  John Schaefer sifts through the steady stream of CDs that have flooded his office to find a sampling of new releases worthy of showcasing in tonight's New Sounds program.  From here we can see some acoustic Afro-pop, a heaping helping of Balkan-inspired jazz, Balkan-informed indie rock, and the Sway Machinery, featuring Khaira Arby.  Plus, new music from Stephan Micus, and a Clean Feed release, Billy Fox’s Blackbirds and Bullets.
