Bronx Sewer - Tibbets Brook Underground (Photograph by Steve Duncan)

Listen to music made in or about the underground – catacombs, cisterns, cellars- on this New Sounds.  There’s music by sax player, percussionist, and a composer for Sesame Street - Ken Field from his release “Subterranea,” recorded in several underground rooms in Roswell, New Mexico.  Ranging from overdubbed saxophones, 'sticks on juice cans, sticks on suitcase' and lots of percussion, the pieces include titles like “Five Saxophones in Search of Meaning” and “Om On the Range.”

Then, listen to “Underground,” a work from Paul Dresher, created and performed on multi-track tape loop system.  Also, there’s music from Mecca Bodega, who appeared in the film “Subway Stories.”  Perhaps there will be enough time to sample something from the soundtrack to the Emir Kusturica film, “Underground” as well.

New Releases, June 2013 (Special Podcast)

John Schaefer sorts through the stacks of new CDs, the Soundcloud files, and other digital submissions which have come across his desk and into his inbox to present some of the finest new releases for the month of June 2013.  Hear music from Dawn of Midi, who make groove music that sounds as though it is electronica, but it's made acoustically.  Then, listen to the Mobius Trio, who make new guitar ensemble music, along with multi-layered 6-string magic from Ben Brody.

I've seen Mecca Bodega in the subway! The musicians with Music Under NY are the best. Surprising, too - did you see the Saw Lady? http://youtu.be/lPvTTc7jAVQ
