I have been listening to the new Sufjan Stevens, The Age of Adz all day. I am fighting playing most of the songs on repeat. Just when you thought he couldn't deliver again Sufjan goes a notch above and beyond. This is still the Sufjan we know and love, but he steps entirely out of the box. This album is fully orchestrated but with a twist. It's an electronic smorgasbord of layered beats, samples and drum machines. You can listen to the full album on NPR, which will be streaming til October 12th.
