AMN Picks of the Week: Braxton & Kerrod / Brotzmann, Gania & Drake / Roscoe Mitchell / Thumbscrew / Llyn Y Cwn / Xerxes the Dark

Here is where I post, at a frequency of about once a week, a list of the new music that has caught my attention that week. All of the releases listed below I’ve heard for the first time this week and come recommended.

Because of current events, these postings may be coming more frequently than once a week for a while.
