Colin Stetson

Friday 1 November

Il est le grand copain de Justin Vernon de Bon Iver, un saxophoniste de génie qui a enregistré et tourné avec une foultitude d’artistes passionnants, d’Arcade Fire à TV On The Radio en passant par Feist, LCD Soundsystem ou David Byrne. Il était temps pour le Montréalais Colin Stetson d’obtenir le triomphe individuel qu’il mérite. L’entreprise est en bonne voie depuis 2008 et la sortie de son premier album New History Warfare, Vol. 1. Son dernier album sorti il y a quelques mois seulement, New History Warfare Vol. 3 : To See More Light, pousse son art à son summum, entre rêveries expérimentales et transe sonore étrange. Colin Stetson est un des artistes les plus fous et passionnants du moment, ses performances live fascinantes sont à ne pas manquer.

A good friend of Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon, Colin Stetson is first of all a gifted saxophonist who has recorded and toured with many fascinating artists such as Arcade Fire, TV on the Radio, Feist, as well as LCD Soundsystem and David Byrne. It was about time that Montreal resident Colin Stetson was given the respect he deserves. His project is certainly on the right track, since 2008 and the release of his first album, New History Warfare, Vol.1. A few months ago, he released his latest album, New History Warfare, Vol 3: To See More Light. This album, a blend of experimental meanderings and strange sonic drones, has Stetson at his best. As one of the craziest and most fascinating artists of the moment, Colin Stetson’s live performances are not to be missed.
