It's that time of the month again for the new releases show on New Sounds. John Schaefer carefully sorts through the stacks of new CDs, the album trailers & teasers, Soundcloud files, and other 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'll have a ball

Hear the latest from Ryuichi Sakamoto, "Async,"  an imaginary soundtrack for a Tarkovsky film. There's also new music in the Arabic tradition from Duo Sabîl, who are virtuoso oud player Ahmad Al Khatib and wizard-like percussionist Youssef Hbeisch. On this record, they are augmented by Hubert Dupont on double bass and Elie Khoury on buzuq, who consider life experiences as melancholic poetry. Plus, music by Irish composer Benjamin Dwyer for baroque violin, harpsichord, and double bass.
