Song Of The Day – 9/9/11

Song Of The Day – “Too Much” by Sufjan Stevens

Stevens goes all electronic and orchestral on this stand-out track from his 2010 album, “The Age Of ADZ.” I love it when musicians do it all themselves on their records, and this one is pretty much a one man show. The video accompanying this song captures the manic, claustrophobic feel of the track.

Song Of The Day – 12/18/10

Song Of The Day – “That Was The Worst Christmas Ever” by Sufjan Stevens from the EP “Ding Dong” 

Between the years 2001 and 2006, Sufjan Stevens released five Christmas EPs of original holiday themed songs and favorite cover songs to friends and family. Two years ago he collected them all into the essential “Songs For Christmas” box set that is one of the few holiday offerings that can be listened to from beginning to end. The set also comes with comics, stickers, lyrics and lots of liner notes. This is essential Christmas listening!
