The results are in. Here's the rebuttal to last night’s program where we present what you, the listeners, have chosen as the best new music releases of 2009. A huge thank you to all of the listeners who voted! Listen for the usual suspect string quartet, a remix album, and a Pulitzer-Prize-winning work as the top finishers. Find out who emerged victorious from this year's contest on the 24th annual New Sounds Listener Poll show.
