May 2009 New Releases

Tuesday, May 26, 2009

All new from the piles of New Sounds chaos! DJ Disorder, aka john Schaefer, lives up to his nom-de-disque, unleashing the May 2009 New Releases show. This is the time of the month when John Schaefer carefully sorts through the stacks of new CDs (digs through them, to be more precise) that have come across his desk to present the newest, greatest cream of the crop, the picks of the piles. From here, we see a collection of remixes of music by Omar Faruk Teklbilek, some Saharan desert blues from Justin Adams and Juldeh Camara, something from the reedman Oran Etkin which fuses Klezmer and Afropop, and a new release from Vieux Farka Toure, "Fondo."

Bob from New Jersey

In defense of The Who and Tommy, it wasn't just Roger Daltry singing everything, the rest of the band also sang different parts in character in the 'opera'.
