Based out of Montreal, Quebec, Colin Stetson’s recent musical endeavour New History Warfare Vol. 2: Judges is a true work of art. A saxophonist and clarinettist, Stetson has worked with the likes of Arcade Fire and Tom Waits. He is the definition of an artist with his dynamic and technical music.

This second release is mesmerizing, haunting and painful, yet beautiful and soothing. The album is hard to label with a genre as Stetson has come up with a genuinely original and unique album. New History Warfare Vol. 2: Judges is highly recommended for anyone who enjoys exploring mental realms that put listeners in a calming trance.
