We never know what we're going to get when we ask NPR stations across the country to choose their favorite new music. Last month's installment of Heavy Rotation featured avant-garde classical, downtempo electronic music and worldly, boundary-less jazz — none of it predictable.

For September, we looked to WUWM in Milwaukee, KXLL in Alaska, WDET in the Motor City, North Country Public Radio in New York and Chicago's free-form station Vocalo. The results again run the sonic gamut, from blues (Eric Bibb) to breakbeats (Evan Bourgeois Lasry), and from hip-hop (Mig Mora) to indie rock (George Kuhar). Even country star Dwight Yoakam makes an appearance.
