Sufjan Stevens-Enjoy Your Rabbit

Filed under: Albums — Teddy @ 1:18 am


Electronic, Indie

Preview: (ignore the video, it’s the only one I could find)

Download: Pt. 1 Pt. 2

Sufjan Stevens is a leading, prominent modern-day folk artist, which is why this is such a left-field release from him. Sure, it was early in his public career, but my how different this album is. An electronic whirlwind of madness with synths and such. I personally think of it as the sound and image of a chemistry lab exploding with rainbows and animals flying out. Still, even in his younger days there are Sufjan-esque qualities intact. Namely, vibraphones and/or xylophones are thrown in with all the synths on nearly every track. And some songs feel like “The Man Of Metropolis Steals Our Hearts” meets electronica. Oh, it should be mentioned this album is entirely instrumental, which I find bizarre as well. First impressions are not the best, neither are second or third, but eventually Sufjan’s “old but totally new feeling” will leave you satisfied. Download, yo.

And sorry for the little lack of updates, I’m in a personal little hell with tests right now.
