It's that time of the month again for the new releases show on New Sounds. Although, given the redirecting of the mail because we are relocating to Varick Street, the boatloads and bins were not as deep as they usually are. Anyhow, for this program, John Schaefer carefully sorts through the new CDs which have come across his desk over the past month to present some of the choice cuts.

Hi there,

I tuned in last night around 11:40pm and heard this incredible piece by what I thought was someone named Karen Tunaka. It was an orchestrated and electronic piece inspired by the Northern Lights. Could you email me with the name and album of this incredibly haunting music?

Thanks. LOVE WNYC.

A few weeks back I was listening to one of your afternoon broadcasts. I heard a female vocalist (did not get her name) but she singing The Boy Next Door and I believe the name of the CD is Love is Here to Stay.
Been looking all over for it but with such limited information I've had no luck. Any information is greatly appreciated.

Just a quick question. I was tuning in last night June 29th around 11:15pm and heard a guitar medley performed by a band named "Zun". It was the one with Blackbird by the Beatles and a piece by Astor Piazzola. Any more info on this band and how to get a copy of their music would be of great help!
