good morning! today’s tunesday post comes from our marketing manager :)

If you’ve managed to come this far without an introduction to Sufjan Stevens – like me until his tour came through Philadelphia – then you are about to experience a treat. Sufjan is a singer songwriter with a unique grasp on storytelling that pulled me into his labyrinth world that night, and I still haven’t crawled my way out. Instead, I’ve spent the last couple of weeks recounting the concert as I would an enigmatic dream. I was in a beautiful old theater laden with dramatic chandeliers and dim lights. The concert was calm and Sufjan’s Stevens’ voice was melodic and soothing; his lyrics thought provoking and real. Then, a shift in the last 25 minutes. He changed his stage presence, layered his voice with distortion and switched gears into lady gaga style dance music, but with lyrics that looped back themes of abandonment, love, and communication.

Long story, short: this show made an impact. My favorite songs from the new Age of Adz are “Too Much”, “I Walked”, “Vesuvius”, and “Impossible Soul”. Check them out below.
