Colin Stetson, New History Warfare Vol. 3: To See More Light
2013 | Label: Constellation / SC Distribution

Avant-garde saxophonist Colin Stetson’s credits as a collaborator include a slew of indie friends — Arcade Fire, Feist, Godspeed You!

Bizarre Magazine's Reviewed this album as follows: "...[it] sounds like a cross between a psychedelic spaghetti ballet (believe it) and a foghorn warning of encroaching Norwegian trolls". That piqued my interest! Here's my two cents. This album is fantastic! I listen to a lot of music and it takes a lot to blow my mind. This definitely did, and then some. The title track, To See More Light, is must-hear. It is one of the most amazing things I have ever heard. Listen to it with headphones in the dark. What Are They Doing In Heaven Tonight is another stand out; very touching. Things take an interesting turn with Brute, which has a, dare I say, death-metal influence with the vocals. Every other track is also brilliant as well. Highly, highly, highly recommended.
