    While it may not have the pop flourishes that the LP did, Those Who Didn't Run showcases Stetson's innovation and raw power.

    It involves not a disconnection from, but an exploration of the material potential in his instrument(s): an excursion to the outer limits of instrumentality, a commitment to resonance as the product of granular viscera: of throats and diaphragms and guts and lungs.

    Though this EP plows a narrower row than Judges, Stetson still manages to show us two very different aspects of his visceral minimalism.

    Though he's still in the spotlight, only time will tell if these more brutal, free-jazz brass tendencies will alienate Stetson from the melody-seeking set.

    It's not a love-hate relationship I have with his stuff, it's more like a so what attitude. So what if he gets Laurie Anderson to recite drab poetry on his record, so what if he can play tens of thousands of notes in one breath.
