Monday September 27th, 2010 13:49 Stream Sufjan Stevens’ new album The Age of Adz

While you will have to wait until October 12 to get your hands on a physical copy of Sufjan Stevens’ new album The Age of Adz (Asthmatic Kitty), you can hear all eleven tracks right now over at NPR. The new release marks a fairly significant departure from his 2005 breakthrough album Illinois; orchestral folk-pop is replaced with hip hop beats and tightly blended electronic sounds and textures. Despite all of the changes, Sufjan’s knack for epic storytelling still shines through. The Age of Adz might be a difficult pill for some fans to swallow, but it sure has been growing on me. What do you make of Sufjan’s new direction?

Sunday September 12th, 2010 07:53 Sufjan Stevens: Too Much

I’m really feeling all of this new Sufjan music we’ve been getting over the past month. Maybe he’s apologizing for falling off the face of the earth for 5 years (this is his first full album since 2005)? If that is the case, apology accepted you funky bastard you…

Stevens is without question taking his music in a new direction (and he’s got his drum machine with him).  This new track reeks of Radiohead.  Listen and Download below.
