Colin Stetson – “High Above A Grey Green Sea”

Saxophone avant-gardist Colin Stetson is gearing up to release a new full-length this April through Constellation, and it’s no surprise that the title is New History Warfare Vol 3: To See More Light. This Warfare series is really growing to become modern music’s most interesting exploration of horn music, and this next LP should be an interesting installment due to some contributions from Justin Vernon and what’s going to be Stetson’s longest song to date–according to CoS.

1, 2, 3- Dreamland Pt. 1 (For Daisy)

Thanks to the people at CoS and LBYB for this one. It’s a new EP from a Pittsburgh duo by the name of 1, 2, 3. And I guess that in a way, this release qualifies as children’s music–well, it was written with the niece of vocalist Nic Snyder in mind.

The five tracks on here are a series of bedtime tales–oh, maybe that makes it “dream pop”–which are sometimes pleasant and sometimes creepy. It’s a winding dreamland of music. Enjoy!
