New Releases, December 2010 (Weekly Podcast)

From

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 much more.
