VOTD: Sufjan Stevens live at WNYC

Watch Sufy play ‘Pleasure Principle’ with half of The National

Last week on his Postpostrock.com blog, Daniel J. Kushner published a terrific, three-part interview with neon gaff tape-wearing indie Americana folk artist Sufjan Stevens that focused on his most recent release, the odd but intriguing departure, “The Age of Adz.” Sufjan’s not known to give many interviews, so I definitely encourage you to give this one a read.

Attentive viewers will recognize one of the Dessner brothers (they’re twins, so bonus points to whoever can tell me which one it is) on this intimate live-in-studio session for WNYC radio in New York, and attentive listeners will recognize the song as the end of Sufjan’s epic suite, “Impossible Soul,” from “The Age of Adz.”

Bio-Dead

There’s something out there. Yawn.


Horror

Rod Lott
With a pulsing score that recalls the best of John Carpenter, the blue-tinted “Bio-Dead” begins promisingly enough, as a handful of guys in hazmat suits approaches yet another seemingly abandoned building to comb for survivors, post-chem disaster.
