Colin Stetson And Sarah Neufeld
Never Were The Way She Was

Available on 12” vinyl LP or CD from Constellation. Colin Stetson’s is renowned for his unique style with tenor and bass sax. Melding polyrhythmic blasts and clanks with prolonged and evolving drones as well as simultaneously vocalising through the mouthpiece. Joining forces with violinist Sarah Neufeld (Arcade Fire) is not new to them, having collaborated live many times over the years, but now it’s on record.

Colin Stetson
New History Warfare, Volume 1

New History Warfare Volume 1 is the third album, and first for Aagoo, by American saxophonist and firm Norman favourite Colin Stetson. Stetson’s career as a musician has seen him dabbling in various genres from jazz to avant garde to experimental and indie rock with Arcade Fire and Bon Iver. All this feeds into the genre defying songs and musical virtuosity on this album.

Color Out Of Space (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Color Out of Space is a Nicholas Cage-fronted film where he finds himself battling an extra terrestrial organism. The main thing to note for readers of this site is its soundtrack which was written and performed by saxophone man and Norman Records favourite Colin Stetson. He approached the job by layering the sounds of coral reefs and processing the results. Interesting. Here is is on swish cosmic magenta wax.

Colin Stetson
Hereditary (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Ari Aster’s Hereditary is the latest horror flick du jour. Plenty of the chat has centred around the film’s soundtrack. The usual adjectives have been applied to Colin Stetson’s score - ‘bone-chilling’, 'blood-curdling', ‘horrifying’ - but it really does warrant such descriptions. The saxophone mastermind balances disquieting ambiences and drones with screes of abrasive noise.

Ex Eye
Ex Eye

Hey, cool idea, just throwing it out there -- how about a metal band with Colin Stetson's sax and Greg Fox on drums? Sounds wacky, let's do it. The definitely cacophonous Ex Eye are an instrumental quartet dual wielding its member's signature mix of elegiac and aggressive compositional work, and their debut is exceedingly likely to stomp down on your heart.

All This I Do For Glory

Windblower and earch-scorcher Colin Stetson returns for a new record of original solo material, his first since the finale in the New History Warfare trilogy. The core of his sound, developed through bass and alto saxophones, is pushed through with his signature circular breathing and cracked vocals, with additional percussion coming by way of mics capturing his frenzied fingering movements. After a stunning Norman Records Album of The Year™ with violinist Sarah Neufeld and an ensemble black metal reinterpretation of Gorecki's Sorrow, this could be seen as a roots record. It's a no frills edition of Stetson, capturing his sparse, largely one-take approach at its most intense, and arguably its most rhythmic. Influenced by Aphex and Autechre -- which isn't that big of a jump, when you think about it -- we happen to think it's quite brilliant.

presents: SORROW - A Reimagining of Gorecki's 3rd Symphony

A remarkable release here: saxophone titan Colin Stetson has arranged Henryk Gorecki’s much loved 3rd Symphony (one of the best-selling classical works ever) for an ensemble of electronics, guitars and woodwinds that includes members of Liturgy and Arcade Fire. It is a fascinating new spin on the piece: nice on Stetson. On 52Hz.

New History Warfare Vol.2: Judges

Aside from being awarded with Norman's Album of the Year for 2015 for 'Never Were the Way She Was' with Sarah Neufeld, Colin Stetson has also recorded the exceptional trilogy of 'New History Warfare' albums and composed the terrifying score to the equally terrifying modern horror classic 'Hereditary'. Often being confused with a jazz musician simply for using a (massive) saxophone, the second volume leans closer to minimalism with its hypnotic repetition. An excellent entry point into the world of Stetson.
