    I only know Seven Swans. What a great album! Simple without being boring.

    I really hope "Barn Owl, Night Killer," or "The Owl and the Tanager," or whatever he decides to call it is on the new CD, and not just for the Barn Owl references! Sufjan is hit and miss with me. I love Seven Swans and parts of Illinoise, plus his Christmas music is lovely, but I'm not crazy about most of his other stuff. But that song has one of the loveliest, most haunting melodies I've heard in recent memory. He played it this year at the Big Ears festival, which makes me hopeful!



    So beautiful. I feel sig/avatar update coming on!

    Yeah, he's been performing it (and Majesty Snowbird!) for years now, so they should both be on the album.

    I knooow but I like to think that he is gay

    Indeed, it's titled "Yes, I am gay. Enjoy."

    Oh man - scored tickets for the Atlanta show today (after a lengthy battle). Why (why) do bands insist on doing pre-sales for fans (yay!) and then have them hosted on the world's shittiest servers. It's 2010 - Using fucking cloud servers when you expect such a huge influx of people.

    I'm listening to the EP at the moment. Nice to hear new music from him that isn't Xmas recordings

    ^Well there's also been The BQE and that re-orchestrated Enjoy Your Rabbit thing, but...I'll be honest, I listen to those approximately...not ever.
