August 2008 New Releases

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 show. He'll sort through the stacks, bins, and boatloads of new CDs which have come across his new clutter-free 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 might include "Katrina Ballads" by Ted Hearne, some Tibetan chant, some Arabic fado, nomadic African blues from Terakaft, and hymn-based music from "Big Love" by David Byrne. And more!
