Blood red skyes.
MP3: Colin Stetson - A Dream of Water
MP3: Colin Stetson - Red Horse (Judges II)
I'm really glad that saxophonist to the stars Colin Stetson's new album "New History Warfare Vol. 2: Judges" is successful with both critics and it's audience, because it really is something special. If you didn't know the score already, he basically recorded this album with no overdubs, limited guests on a handful of songs and had several mics placed through his instrument to capture every sound made. Everything you hear is sense-numbing and wonderful.
The two songs I've featured today give you a look at both sides of the album: one with guests and one without. The one without, "Red Horse (Judges II)" is easily the highlight of the whole album.
