New Year, New Sounds

Spin the Globe playlist, 4 January 2008

Happy New Year! We started out the new calendar year with a show chock full of brand new global releases.

SoundRoots gets a nice nod in the January/February edition of Global Rhythm, in a spread called "Global Web Trends." It's also worth picking up for the articles on Youssou N'dour and Dengue Fever, among other things (though it seems to be missing the page where they give details on the songs on the companion CD... hmmm...)
