New Releases, June 2012

It's that time of the month again for the new releases show on New Sounds. John Schaefer carefully separates the wheat from the chaff for this show.  He'll sort through the stacks of new CDs, the strange Soundcloud free-associations, and the highly anticipated digital submissions which have come across his desk and into his inbox over the past month to present some of the finest new releases. He'll skim off the cream. He'll pick the lentils from the ashes. You get it.

Take a listen to the new rendering of the groundbreaking record, "Apollo" by the band Icebreaker, along with something from the tropical Bulgarian dubby release from Kottarashky & the Rain Dogs.  Also, hear the arresting sounds of a bass clarinet "abused" by Gareth Davis, together with the double-bow-wielding cellist Frances-Marie Uitti.  And more.
