Sufjan Stevens

August 1, 2008 at 12:05 pm 4 comments

Sufjan Stevens has always been a mystery to me. His intricate songs about God, paired with his record-label “Asthmatic Kitty” have made his persona (at least in my eyes), a source of confusion. All of his songs are in praise of the almighty, with heartbreakingly beautiful melodies and delicate instrumentals. Yet, this soft-spoken singer is apt to don ostentatious costumes during concerts, make tall claims about his future (making an album for every state in the US?), and, on top of everything, be a smoldering sex-bomb of sin.

Sufjan, you are a world of paradoxes. Paradoxical hotness.

Take it or leave it. Sufjan is one of the most skilled musicians in an era that will be remembered for false, pop-based talent. It’s just sad that being a person of solid values, honest celebrity, and true artistry goes unnoticed for the wrong reasons. Thanks for staying under the radar, Sufjan. Your attractive brilliance is a beacon of hope in a sea of hacks and industry puppets. All we ask is that you continue to do what you do, the way you do it. With dignity, grace, and oh yeah, that insanely sexy voice.

    I absolutely adore Sufjan Stevens. His work is an oasis of subtlety and beauty in a desert of unsubtle ugly stuff. Michigan is, in my opinion, a perfect album.

    If you’ve never heard of him, download Romulus and Chicago. They should give you a pretty good idea of how awesome he is.

    I had that picture as my desktop all through the winter. As much as I love him, I had to get rid of it because his squinty eyebrows were doing my head in.

    But yeah. I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of him. I mean, the guy wrote a symphony for some highway somewhere in America – how can you not love that, even just the idea of it. I wish he’d tour the UK again – I almost went to see him three years ago in one of the most intimate venues of Glasgow, but didn’t know enough about him then and turned it down. Stupid, stupid, stupid…

    Sufjan, you can dress up like a butterfly and play a banjo at me anytime.

    I think Ryan and Sufjan need to have an eyebrow-off.

    Seriously, Betty. Ryan, you fool!! Seeing Sufjan in an intimate setting, close enough to touch him??? sigh.
