Colin Stetson: avant-garde saxophone juggernaut

Can you even remember the last time you were totally floored by an album? Not a single, not a playlist, not a mashup – AN ALBUM. Well, if you’re like me and spend most of your time hop-scotching through an iTunes library, allow me to introduce you to Colin Stetson, the avant-garde saxophone juggernaut behind New History Warfare, Vol. 3. Stetson employs circular breathing and a horn the size of a Cadillac to make sounds that are, frankly, extraterrestrial. The album grips you like a fever and never lets go. Enjoy.
