It's the most fabulous time of the month.  John Schaefer carefully selects from all of the exciting and terrible things that have come into the New Sounds office via digital promo, CD, or the occasional throwback LP or cassette (not that easy to play around the office, sadly - please include digital download!) to present the best of the months' crop of new music releases.  From where the staff is sitting, it looks like there could be music from the Minneapolis Guitar Quartet, Vinicius Cantuaria, and Brooklyn Rider. 

If we're lucky, there will also be some of that "Jama Ko" record from Bassekou Kouyate and Ngoni ba, maybe some Koby Israelite or Charles Lloyd, and perhaps even a bit of Ewan Dobson's "Acoustic Metal."  But the staff is not holding its breath.
