Sufjan Stevens is the most phenomenal musician I have heard of in a long while. While I have been quietly listening to new releases from old favourites (Beck, the Foo etc) all year, today i had my socks totally knocked off by this unknown called Sufjan. But what is even more amazing is that Seven Swans, the album i heard, is his fourth and its not even his latest. Oh and he's a christian.
The rest of my year now looks likely to be filled with rich musical goodness.
