Album of the Year 2015
Colin Stetson And Sarah Neufeld - 'Never Were The Way She Was'
Colin Stetson has here teamed up with Arcade Fire’s violinist Sarah Neufeld to create an album where each instrument collides with the other over a series of polyrhythmic, ever-shifting compositions. Evocative, raw and genuinely new, 'Never Were The Way She Was' possibly deserves Album of the Year simply by turning the saxophone into a listenable instrument....
Using no loops, overdubs or samples, the album is incredibly varied and nuanced - particularly considering it was created in real time. The result is, by far, the most exciting work of their respective careers.Buy it now
