New Sounds is unlike any radio show you've ever heard: a whirlwind tour of new and unusual music from all corners of the globe. New Sounds combs recent recordings for one of the most informative and compelling hours on radio, and aims to make the world smaller. For over 25 years, host John Schaefer has been finding the melody in the rainforest and the rhythm in an orchestra of tin cans. Defying rigid categorization and genre pigeonholing, New Sounds offers new ways to hear the ancient language of song. With guest musicians from David Byrne to Meredith Monk to Ravi Shankar to Philip Glass to Christopher O'Riley to Bang On A Can, Schaefer presents performances (both in-studio and from the New Sounds Live concert series) and premieres new works from the classic and operatic to folk and jazz, and anything else in between. Each show has a theme, ranging from post-rock to klezmer to African blues to minimalism. The variety of cultures and styles explored is boundless. Music you may not have known existed and now can't live without.

Each of these transmissions are a separate, special ride through the multi-colored corridors of Bassnectar mixes and sets; an outlet for the highlights and the bangers, as well as a testing lab for unreleased projects, sideshow experiments, and the vast music collection of our record crates and hardrives. We call the Bassnectar style "omnitempo maximalism" ...a shorthand expression for our musical attitude and philosophy: No Limits, No Rules, No Stopping the all-out Freakshow. At times mellow or melodic, and at times surging or perverse, we explore all sounds and genres with open arms. Visit www.bassnectar.net/podcast for more info on specific broadcasts.
