There's brass band music, marching band music, and “freak” marching band on this show - an anytime party. New Sounds is treated to a session recorded with the Chicago-based circus punk beast, Mucca Pazza. "The hardest smelling band in show business, Mucca Pazza (“mad cow”) is a sight to be heard." (Seriously, their Bandcamp says!) They are truly a spectacle. Listen to their set performed in our studio that Soundcheck couldn’t fit on that podcast.

Also, listen to music from the Brooklyn-based Punjabi brass dance band, Red Baraat, who just tore it up at Brooklyn Bowl the other night. (There's another show at Brooklyn Bowl, Monday May 16th with Mariachi Flor de Toloache.) Always infectious, and ever-evolving, there’s traces of Qawwali trance, brass funk, jazz, go-go, and hip-hop. Another sight to be heard!

Not to be outdone, there’s music from the French klezmer Balkan swing band La Fanfare Couche-Tard, whose name translates to “Night Owl Band" or literally "goes-to-bed-late band." Plus, hear from the Brooklyn outfit, Breakdown Brass Band, who bring the Afro-funk and Balkan Brass party, and share members with Antibalas, Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, & Slavic Soul Party, among others. That, and more!
