New Releases, December 2011

Friday, December 30, 2011

It's the most wonderful time of the month!  John Schaefer sifts through the deluge of CDs (and digital offerings) which has flooded his office to find a sampling of new releases worthy of showcasing in tonight's New Sounds program.  There's new guitar music, maybe best described as "zen-shred," from Ben Greenberg, aka "Hubble," (he of Zs and Pygmy Shrews) from his hypnotic solo space odyssey, "Hubble Drums."
