Are there podcasts about the contemporary classical / alt classical / new music / experimental music scene? Particularly interviews with composers and musicians, talk about the music, and so forth; as opposed to playlists of the music itself. WNYC's Soundcheck and other public radio podcasts sometimes touch on this kind of stuff, but I want more! And not just John Adams and John Luther Adams all the time. Blog recommendations also welcome, but podcasts seem like a perfect format for talking about music.
Looking for music recommendations (particularly instrumental recordings) that capture the mythically haunted swampy vibe of the American gulf coast. Older/obscure/authentic tracks are welcome, but I'm also interested in contemporary americana tunes that capture the spirit of the Louisiana swamps. [more inside]

I just posted the second episode of my podcast and alerted my friends on social media and message boards. I want to reach out to the larger world though. The podcast is freeform (inspired by WFMU, John Peel, Henry Rollins) but so far has had a general focus of avant-garde and "new music" (inspired in part by John Schaefer's New Sounds). Are there sites/communities where I can let people know I exist without making it seem like spamming?
I've recently discovered mixes of songs that are about 45-60 minutes long such as FACT mix 347 by How to Dress Well (HTDW) or another mix by HTDW called Live Yourself. Where can I find more music like this? Also, what are some music resources (besides Hype Machine, SoundCloud, and LastFM) that are great for discovering new artists or new songs by some of your favorite artists? [more inside]

[New-Classical-Music Filter] What are your favorite pieces from the last few decades (or have you written anything) for solo trumpet, trombone, bass tbn, or tuba? Seeking scores and/or recordings to study (online availability would be a huge plus). Small-chamber works, other than brass quintet, would be great too. Asking because I haven't written for brass insts. except in orchestra/large-ensemble contexts, and I want to explore solo/chamber writing for them. Yes, I'll also get what I can from newmusicjukebox. Thanks!
