For this New Sounds, listen to some recent film scores, new music-style.  We'll hear from a collection of soundtrack work that Nick Cave has done with Warren Ellis, called "White Lunar."  It's a 2-disc set including music from the forthcoming film "The Road," along with music from two documentary films; one about young girls caught up in Cambodia's sex trade and the other, "The English Surgeon," follows a doctor's attempt to bring neurosurgery to post-Soviet Ukraine. 

Also, we'll listen to a bit of Angelo Badalamenti's score for "Twin Peaks," and some of Carter Burwell's recent "Where The Wild Things Are." Plus, film music from Pulitzer Prize-winning composer David Lang.
