John Schaefer carefully sorts through the stacks, bins, and boatloads of new CDs, downloads, LPs, cassettes (!), which came across his desk this past January 2012. Hear some music by Guy Klucevsek, from his "the Multiple Personality Reunion tour," along with something from guitarist and experimenter Dustin Wong. Also, listen to fiddle music from Brittany Haas & Dan Trueman and something from bassist/composer Florent Ghys. Plus, a work from composer Zack Browning, as played by the Cadillac Moon Ensemble. And more.
