Was gonna say that in many ways Carrie & Lowell is also the Oregon album but I see they’ve covered that
Aren’t we due a new Sufjan album around about now?
If nothing else can we get another Xmas music boxset this year
Fingers crossed ay?
going by his pattern since Illinois i’m expecting a proper album next year
Let’s hope so. Very curious to hear what direction he goes in next…
I got excited when Bandcamp popped up with an alert that there was a new Sufjan album! But then I had a listen to the one track preview and realised that I wasn’t that interested in this release, unfortunately.
NEW ALBUM ALERT!!!
“Sufjan Stevens and Lowell Brams have made an instrumental new age album called Aporia , which will be released on AKR March 27, 2020”
Just saw that and got excited! Had a listen to the one available song and I’m instantly assuming it’s an instrumental album, and potentially not a ‘proper’ Sufjan album? It sounds nice, but I’m reigning my excitement levels in a bit though.
Aha. Yes, excitement levels suitably adjusted.
Aye instrumental new age album is what theyre calling it.
File this with ‘Planetarium’ etc I think
FFS Sufjan! Pull your finger out, m8. We want proper songs!
I really enjoyed Planeterium in the end - it grew on me quote a bit!
I’m sure he released some other kind of instrumental thing last year which didn’t interest me at all though. Unless I imagined that!
Oh I like Planetarium too but not a ‘proper’ Sufjan album is what I meant.
oooh that sounds bloody lovely. And funnily enough, I’ve just ordered Planetarium on vinyl about 20 minutes ago !
Ah, it’s with his stepfather
