Jam of the Week: Sufjan Stevens

sufjan

Artist: Sufjan Stevens

Album: Carrie & Lowell

Genre: Singer Songwriter (Modern)

Date: 2015

Sound: Somber, Personal, & Quiet (That’s a Real Bummer, Man)

Cool Stuff: Sufjan Stevens is finally back, the same dude that gave us genius Avante Garde on Age of Adz and quiet, emotional ballads on Michigan. Now he turns personal, tackling the death of his mother from back in 2012. This album is his means of grieving, which in turn makes it a very personal album. Skipping the experimentation for a more direct approach, Sufjan Stevens is at his very best, bringing the listener into the somber depths of his emotions. Just don’t play this album at a party. That’d be weird.
