Sufjan Stevens suffers from a bad case of religion, which is a terrible affliction for anyone to have to suffer through. It is a long term illness, largely without any treatment available. What makes matters worse, is that his chosen career as a musician sits so badly with it, as the two are basically incompatible. Still, it does mean he does a good line in Christmas songs.
Just after reading the wonderful Candepop’s blog on Sufjan this morning, I just found out there’s a few new ones knocking around.
A few members of the National took over 6 music for a night, and you see the results here.
If you want to hear just the Sufjan tracks, you can get them here. UPDATE: They just listed a full ep here, so enjoy!
He may be the only acceptable form of Christmas music, in my humble opinion.
