When he isn’t putting out¬†records, multi instrumentalist Colin Stetson has been a touring member of The Arcade Fire, Bell Orchestre and Bon Iver and has recorded with everyone from Tom Waits to David Byrne to¬†Godspeed You! Black Emperor. ¬†Over the past two decades, Stetson¬†has built a distinct style¬†in the artist community¬†as a¬†saxophonist, and is also well-versed in the clarinet, cornet, french horn and flute. ¬†Needless to say, when he’s ready to put out another full-length album, it’s most certainly going to be worth a listen.
The tone that Stetson can get from a saxophone is uncanny. ¬†He can make it sound like an overdriving guitar¬†or even a synthesizer, creating atmospheres and moods that some producers¬†need an entire batch of software to accomplish. ¬†His newest album, All This I Do For Glory, continues down his path of ambient experimentation. ¬†If you loved how Tim Hecker transformed his piano into an abyss of noise in Ravedeath, 1972, then Colin Stetson is worth your time and energy. ¬†Check out his newest single below and grab a copy of the new record on white vinyl after the ‘buy’ link. ¬†There’s a chance that quite a few copies could end up at your local indie stores, too, so give¬†those folks a call if you don’t want to pay international shipping.
Limited to 1000 white vinyl copies (we have a limited amount of copies for this store only, the rest will be available in all good indie shops).
