Multi-national New York based gypsy punks Gogol Bordello have just released their first album in four years called Seekers and Finders. Frontman Eugene Hutz, a self proclaimed immigrant punk who has been leading the group for nearly two decades says the album is personal, “It's high-energy, it's storytelling, it's expressive on all topics. I think the value of experience driven art is increasing because, due to technology, we are having fewer real life experiences”.

On Sunday September 17th KZYX aired live commentary from the sheepdog trials at the Mendocino County Fair in Boonville. Yorkville sheep rancher and two time trial winner Kevin Owens was joined by program director Alice Woelfle from the grandstands.

Republique Amazone is the first album from the all female West African music collective known as Les Amazones d'Afrique, or The Amazons of Africa. The Group uses their music to campaign for gender equality and address beliefs that perpetuate disempowerment and violence against women. They take their name from the Dahomey Amazons, Women warriors who roamed Benin for 200 years. Their sound is the sound of the diaspora of African music returning home, reclaiming traditional sounds outside of genre and time.

George Friedrich Handel was a prolific baroque composer who died in 1759. He belonged to a deep tradition of improvisation which was a valued skill of musicians through the 19th century. Christina Pluhar has breathed new life into baroque improvisation with her new album Handel Goes Wild. Her ensemble L'Arpeggiata highlights Handel's dynamism with jazz inspired performance styles. The effect is beautiful and intriguing. The album is Handel Goes Wild.

Following the death of beloved New Orleans icon Allen Toussiant, Stanton Moore and his trio put all their plans on hold and got to work on a beautifully crafted tribute album with jazz greats such as Nicolas Payton and Donald Harrison Jr., and New Orleans legends Trombone Shorty and Cyril Neville. The album contains ten tracks which convey the spirit of Allen Toussiant and New Orleans beautifully. The Album is called With You In Mind.
