February 2010 New Releases

It's the most wonderful time of the month - time for new releases show on New Sounds! John Schaefer carefully sorts through the stacks, bins, and boatloads of new CDs which have come across his desk over the past month to present some choice cuts. We’ll hear from Norwegian pianist Christian Wallumrod, and his ensemble’s odd assortment of textures – the usual rhythm section of bass and drums, but with baroque harp, trumpet, and Hardanger fiddle. Also, listen to music from Icelandic composer Johan Johansson's evocative film score, "And In The Endless Pause There Came The Sound Of Bees." Plus, there’s roots music of the future from Tribecastan, a band from an imaginary land where Indian sarod, surf rock, West African kora and Slovakian shepherds commingle freely. And what would an end-of-the month new releases show be without some Balkan brass band music? We’ll listen to something from the Zlatne Uste folks, who blend Brazil through the Balkans. And more.
