December 2008 New Releases

For this New Sounds program, we finally get to the last batch of new releases from 2008. Look for the new release of Gavin Bryars played by Sentieri Selvaggi, something from post-rock outfit Mountains, perhaps a bit by the Celtic/Baltic/Sephardic-sounding Teslim, maybe some squonk-rock from Gutbucket, and maybe a little something from the new Jim Hall/Bill Frisell collaboration. And much more.
