From New Sounds
Hand-picked music, genre free. 24/7 radio from New York City.

On Thursday, June 28, the singer-songwriter and art-rock bandleader Shara Nova (My Brightest Diamond) premieres new music for the next in our Electric Nights series at Public Arts. Mic Write, the Detroit-formed rapper, poet and performance artist, opens the evening as a special request by Nova.

The charismatic Nova has charted an elusive trajectory, from fronting a rock band, to singing the solo part in Henryk Górecki’s Third Symphony, to leading a marching band at the Sundance film festival, to composing and starring in her Baroque opera, You Us We All, which premiered at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in 2015.

Mic Write’s 2016 album, Onus Chain, was named by the longstanding hip hop site Okayplayer as one of the year’s most influential protest records. In his biography, Mic Write writes that “he wishes gentrification had a face so he could punch it, his stomach thinks coffee is a food group all its own, and his soul is fighting to leave everything it loves healthier, safer and more powerful than when it arrived.”

NewSounds.org infuses the eclectic spirit of the radio show into a full online and live event experience. Combining the New Sounds radio show, WNYC’s Soundcheck podcast and the adventurous spirit of WQXR’s Q2 Music, NewSounds.org will be a place for discovery, conversation, insights into the creative process, and of course 24/7 music.
The centerpiece is New Sounds Radio, an online station hosted by New Sounds founder and long-running host John Schaefer, but infused with new, emerging voices including experimental musicians Kelly Moran, Eliza Bagg and Lora-Faye Åshuvud, and tastemakers Gamall Awad and Matt Werth, along with WQXR’s Helga Davis and Terrance McKnight, and composer-guitarist Phil Kline. The station will feature an array of styles and genres – from singer Courtney Barnett to contemporary classical music ensemble Kronos Quartet, from jazz icon Henry Threadgill to the Nordic folk music of Wardruna, from electronic composer and bandleader Anna Meredith to the stunning vocals of Puerto Rico’s Ileana Cabra.
“With almost everything ever recorded anywhere now available online, where do you start? New Sounds might be the place,” said John Schaefer. “We try to be friendly and jargon free, and gleefully oblivious of genre. Our goal is to find the artists, the songs, and the sounds that you might love – if only you get a chance to hear them. And we believe that algorithms won’t give you the same experience as a set of recommendations from real people. A friendly guide is the best way to discover new music, or music that defies easy categorization; and some of that music just might change your life.”
“For three decades, New Sounds was one of the last bastions of free form FM programming; completely genre-free and dictated solely by the impeccable and irresistible tastes of its host,” said Alex Ambrose, Senior Producer, New Sounds. “NewSounds.org will usher that sense of discovery and unpredictability into the digital age, drawing on the best of New York’s curatorial and taste-making power.”
