Grande Halle de la Villette,
Friday 1st November 2013
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.
