For those not up to date on Cluster 1’s original content (busy watching The Wire, we’re sure), Feedback is a series from CoS/C1 and production company Side B where we deliver exclusive (and highly intimate) interviews with exciting and unique acts from across the musical spectrum. Previous episodes saw us get cozy with up-and-comers Cults and offer an introduction to female-to-male transgender recording artist Rae Spoon.
Now, the latest episode of Feedback gets us closer to a man who’s been around the block a few times, but who only now is exploring solo options. As a multi-instrumentalist, Colin Stetson has played for and recorded with the likes of Arcade Fire, Tom Waits, Bon Iver, The National, My Brightest Diamond, TV on the Radio, Feist, David Byrne, and a slew of other artists. Stetson discusses a number of topics, including the development of his unique sound, working with some of music’s biggest names, and a truly memorable gig along side Arcade Fire in Mexico City, MX.
Check out the video below, or head over to Cluster 1. Stetson’s sophomore solo album, New History Warfare Vol. 2: Judges, is out now.
