New Releases Sept. 2006

It's that time of the month again for the new releases show on New Sounds. John Schaefer carefully separates the wheat from the chaff for this harvest moon show. He'll sort through the stacks, bins, and boatloads of new CDs which have come across his desk 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 get it. What we can see of his desk from here includes something new from Christopher Willits, big band thrashlounge from the Flat Earth Society, potluck jazz from Taylor Haskins, new orchestral "serious?" music from Danny Elfman, and perhaps a few post-punk samba loungey cover songs.
