I'm not the biggest Sufjan Stevens fan in the world, but every once in awhile, the singer/songwriter makes something that just sticks to my bones, usually when treading into weirder atmospheres and odder material. Last month's "The Greatest Gift" mixtape featured all kinds of odds and ends from 2015's "Carrie & Lowell," which are all fine i suppose, but album opener "Wallowa Lake Monster" hits all the right spots. A beautiful mix of folk harmonies and synth textures that closes with echoing and droning cinematic allure. I need more of this pronto. Listen below and get the cassette here via Asthmatic Kitty.
