VOTD: Watch Colin Stetson’s facial veins expand abnormally

VOTD: Watch Colin Stetson’s facial veins expand abnormally

In honor of the awesome Iron Maiden T-shirt he wore during Bon Iver’s lush, incredible show at the Uptown Theater in Kansas City, Mo., this weekend, here’s a new track from muscly saxophonist Colin Stetson. It looks like they probably shot it during a recent soundcheck on this tour.

The video doesn’t do his guns justice, though. Up against the rest of the dudes in Bon Iver, the burl on those pipes makes him look like an NFL linebacker. But they’re clearly nothing compared to the ones in his throat. Dude is a singular talent. Enjoy “Part of Me Apart from You.”



New History Warfare Vol. 2: Judges” is out now, and highly recommended.

What sound does a Walrus make?

Watch three more local musicians test out Walrus Audio’s latest product, the Iron Horse.

Normanite and Gentle Ghost guitarist Brady Smith alerted his Facebook friends to another Delo Creative-created video testimonial promotion yesterday. This one, like the last one for the Voyager pedal, features three excellent local musicians playing around with it in the studio. This time, it’s Tulsa guitarist Clay Welch (Panda Resistance, Dead Sea Choir), Colourmusic drummer Nick Ley and Stardeath bass player Casey Joseph.



It sounds like this distortion pedal adds some serious force to the live performance. So watch out, Oklahoma music fans, as Brady Smith may be equipping your favorite bands with what they need to stomp on your eardrums.

The Jeffrey Dahmer Files

“Go look in the refrigerator.”


Documentary

Rod Lott
Understandably, a documentary about serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer that weaves fictional elements with fact sounds like a wretched, evil, exploitative thing. Instead, it's a small marvel of microcinema — and another argument for the storytelling power of the nonfiction format.
