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.

New History Warfare Vol. 1

Increasingly influential sax honker Colin Stetson does everything with a saxophone except make it sound like an actual saxophone. As anyone who has ears knows this is a good thing and here comes a re-issue of his very first solo album originally released in 2007 and showcases the amazing pips, squeaks and squarks he gets out of the instrument to make his compositions.

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.
