Wednesday, April 30, 2014

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 of new CDs, the Soundcloud files, and other digital submissions which have come across his desk and into his inbox 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.

Hear from the forthcoming record by 12-string guitarist and composer Alexander Turnquist, and music from Kojiro Umezaki with Brooklyn Rider, along with music from the Austin, TX-based melting pot band, Atash. Preview some of the record featuring Toumani Diabate and his son, Sidiki, as well as music by Prism Quartet member and composer Matthew Levy. And more.
