New Releases August 2006

John Schaefer once again picks through the bucketloads of CDs that have flooded his office to find a sampling of new releases worthy of showcasing on this New Sounds program. Probable suspects include something from the string quartet Ethel, and a sampling from the new Anonymous 4 record. With any luck, we'll also get to hear a work for percussion by Christopher Adler, along with some new music for Japanese koto by Chieko Mori, and perhaps a track off of the new Kaki King record.
