New Sufjan EP out now!

New Sufjan EP

Sure, i missed out on presale tickets again!! Damn you internets! But, lo and behold there is new Sufjan material out today. Sure there has been Christmas EP comps and a pretty awesome BQE score, but the new EP All Delighted People feels like an actual follow up to 2005′s illinoise. At 8 songs and 60 minutes, this is more LP than EP. Semantics aside, get your ass over to Sufjan’s Band Camp and buy this for $5 and report back here with the verdict. Here is a quote from Asthmatic Kitty after the jump:

The EP, All Delighted People, is built around two different versions of Sufjan’s long-form epic ballad “All Delighted People,” a dramatic homage to the Apocalypse, existential ennui, and Paul Simon’s “Sounds of Silence.” Sounds delightful, yes! The song was originally workshopped (oh we hate making workshop a verb, but time is money!) on Sufjan’s previous tour in the fall of 2009. Other songs on the EP include the 17-minute guitar jam-for-single-mothers “Djohariah,” and the gothic piano ballad “The Owl and the Tanager,” a live-show mainstay (and Debbie Downer if you ask us; what’s it doing on a “Delighted” EP?).
