A favourite at Spotisfaction Towers, Sufjan Stevens has just released his new EP, All Delighted People on the Asthmatic Kitty label. I’ve had it on replay since it’s been released, and would heartily recommend you give it a listen. You can buy it now from Sufjan’s BandCamp website in almost any format you could wish for, and the price is a quite remarkably low $5.
Although it’s an EP, don’t be fooled into thinking this is anything less than a fully featured release. These are 8-tracks that have clearly had a lot of love poured into them, with a runtime longer than a huge number of full-length albums at a whopping 60 minutes. Title song All Delighted People is an 11 minute wonder all on its own. From the description for this opener on BandCamp: All Delighted People is built around two different versions of Sufjan”™s long-form epic ballad “All Delighted People,” a dramatic homage to the Apocalypse, existential ennui, and Paul Simon”™s “Sounds of Silence.” – it might sound completely over the top, but for those unfamiliar with Sufjan this is just the norm, and we completely love him for it.
Anyway, the EP is also available to stream for free so have a gander below:
