New Sounds

The office-destroying, er…clean-up continues!  Intern Leya and the New Sounds All-Purpose Assistant have maybe made a 33% reduction of the chaos.  But, John can use his desk drawers again!

thegloamingofficial performed at thegreenespace last Friday, June 20, 2014. Riveting and magical, the show will be part of a future New Sounds program, once John Schaefer returns from vacation.  More photos on our Facebook.

This final studio recording before his untimely death in 1999 saw Ananda pushing boundaries yet again, teaming up with eclectic London producer Sam “State of Bengal” Zaman to mesh elements of Indian classical music with breakbeat, hip-hop, and tabla-driven beats in an exhilarating, at times zany, fusion of 60s pop and 90s grooves.

Midday grooves.

Couldn’t resist.  Sigur Rós have been part of New Sounds…
