It's the end of the month again, which means it's time for John Schaefer to carefully select from all of the exciting and terrible things that have come into the New Sounds office via digital promo, CD, or the occasional throwback LP or cassette (not that easy to play around the office, sadly - please include digital download!) to present the best of the months' crop of new music releases.  From where the staff is sitting, it looks like there could be music from the forthcoming record by sax player Colin Stetson and violinist/composer Sarah Neufeld, a nearly orchestral feat achieved by the duo alone. Sample from the forthcoming Missy Mazzoli/Victoire/Glenn Kotche record due out in late March 2015.  There’s also music from the Northumbrian folk phenoms, The Unthanks, from their brand-new release, “Mount the Air.” Then, listen to the latest from the BKO Quintet, five established artists from Mali who together make “tradi-modern” music that forges connections between the urbane griot and the rural hunter. Plus, hear music by the Scottish folk big band, Treacherous Orchestra, who wail on their fiddles, pipes, banjo or accordion, matching power chords and drum kit as they approach amps-to-11. That, and more.
