Instrumental Crossovers

On this edition of New Sounds, the string quartet Ethel plays "Nepomuk’s Dances" by Marcelo Zarvos from their brand-new release "Light." It's a work with a Latin-American flavor, snappy crisp pizzicatos, fiery fast passages and a (literally) foot-stomping final movement. Also, indie-rock heroes Yo La Tengo play their own instrumental "Daphnia," from the new album whose title just rolls off the tongue, "I Am Not Afraid Of You and I Will Beat Your Ass." Plus, music by Explosions in the Sky, Slow Six, and a host of other samplings of music without words.
