This is my kind of Christmas music: a disturbing rendition of “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” by true weirdo Sufjan Stevens, from his massive album featuring practically every Christmas song ever written, Silver and Gold.
The new album by Sufjan Stevens is titled “The Age of Adz,” and it’s a gloriously weird, eccentric piece of music, full of odd bleepy electronic effects, a full symphony orchestra, and complex, surprising arrangements and lyrics. It may not be for everyone, but for me it’s the album of the year.
Here’s a live version of “Too Much,” recorded at the Sydney Opera House during Sydney Festival 2011.
Tonight’s insanity break is this wildly creative video for “Get Real, Get Right,” from the new album by the delightfully weird Sufjan Stevens, The Age of Adz.
