Colin Stetson, Among the Sef

I love the way the sound of the saxophone dies away, just leaving the clacking of the keys. I love how the song feels both frenetic and mournful, like it’s a desperate attempt to save something that is slipping away.


This song reminds me of the summer just gone. Of floating around New York in the baking heat and going to the cinema three times in one weekend.
