For this New Sounds, John Schaefer sifts through the avalanche of CDs (and digital offerings) piled up in his office to find a sampling of new releases worthy of showcasing in tonight's New Sounds program.  Also, he'll look back at some of the things that came out during 2012 that might have gone unnoticed on the chaos that is his desk, and ahead to some of the things that 2013 holds.  Listen to inventive voice-based music from Holly Herndon, some hypnotic plucked strings from Ljova, and some Zimbabwean music by way of Scandinavia in a collaborative project called Monoswezi.
