Sufjan Stevens - The Ascension

  1. I tried to listen to this album and thought the first two tracks were good sonically, but there's just something about it that turns me off. Which is a shame because Carrie and Lowell is one of the most beautiful things ever to be put to record. It's painfully beautiful and haunting.

  3. Seems to be from a lost video for Sisyphus - Rhythm of Devotion. I've never seen it, or heard of it. Interesting.

  6. This album just gets better and better with every play. I have it on a loop all morning and whenever I drift out from it and tune back in I keep thinking 'Is that Robyn'? Some of this album is very Honeyesque.
     
  7. I found Video Games a bit basic when it came out but i've been converted. It's actually quite powerful really, the perfect song for drunkenly dancing around your bedroom to.

  9. Man there's something about electro Sufjan and my mental breakdowns that just gel. What a perfect album for surviving in this mess of a world

  10. Oooh this is stun. And Justin Vernons on another track? Idk who Carm is but I’m living.
     
  11. Video for Tell Me You Love Me directed by Luca Guadagnino.

     
  12. I do live for his commitment to refuse to be in his actual videos. This is a bit of a serve though.
     
  13. Sufjan seems to be teasing that new "holistic music" is coming this week on his blog: https://sufjan.com The label also re-shared this with the eyes emoji, so seems something Suf-related is planned.

  15. This last album was dead on arrival, wasn't it? I get that it was released in the middle of a pandemic, but he Lana'd the campaign pretty much, like.. the moment it got released.

  16. I feel like the last album lacked any of the charm that most Sufjan Steven’s’ have. It all kind of felt the same.
     
  17. The project is called "Meditations", and the track "Meditation V" will be available tomorrow. It's a 2:11 long instrumental, and very similar to the "Aporia" album with Lowell released last year.

  19. I am kind of perched. I quite like instrumentals, but I feel like it is hard to listen to it if it isn't jazz/classical. But if anyone can pull it off with a modern sound he is the guy to go to!

  20. Scream. Reminds me of how they framed the Skyward Sword rerelease comparing this to Carrie & Lowell.
