The mystery & grand intimacy of Sufjan Stevens


24-11-2023 • 1 hora 14 min

Episode 234 is the latest in the occasional series of the podcast - Andrea's favourite weird little guy.

Nialler and Andrea Cleary take a big overview of the main discography of one of our favourite songwriters.

Sufjan Stevens is a Detroit Michigan artist, songwriter, composer and multi-instrumentalist who has a deep catalogue of studio albums drawing on orchestral conceptual releases about US States, electronic hymnals, secular-friendly Christian music, Christmas albums, ambitious cosmic electronic long players and devastating folk and singer-songwriter music informed by grief, love and life.

Andrea leads us through his main thoroughfare, stopping at Enjoy Your Rabbit (2001) to Michigan (2003), Seven Swans (2004), Illinois (2005), The Avalanche (2006), The Age of Adz (2010), Carrie & Lowell (2015), The Ascension (2020), Convocations (20201) and stopping at his most recent rejuvenating album Javelin, released in the wake of the rare peek into Sufjan's private life - his coming out after speaking about the passing of his partner, and the autoimmune disease he has been rehabilitating from recently.
