Listen to atmospheric songs with unusual textures and unexpected sounds or noises woven into them on this New Sounds program.  Hear songs from Brian Eno, Antony & the Johnsons, and Eno’s friend the poet and composer Ebe Oke.  There's also something by Susanna & the Magical Orchestra from Sweden, along with music from Bjork off of the record, "Medulla."  Then hear a song by Irish singer Iarla Ó Lionáird from his record Foxlight.  Plus, something of a murder ballad from the folkster Sam Amidon, and more.
