His new tune In the Words of the Governor is pure crazy rock awesome. Listen to it. I implore you.

I'm digging it.

Sufjan is the man.

I saw this just yesterday. I haven't heard this song before "The Lakes of Canada." Sounds like his more traditional stuff. Plus, he's on a freaking rooftop.

I just discovered "The Lakes of Canada" is a song by The Innocence Mission.

This song is the definition of "meh".

Yeah. It was interesting in an OMG-that's-Sufjan? kind of way but I don't need to hear it again.

I like it when artists try new things, but that song just hurts my head.

Am I the only one who thinks it's kind of clever?

It's quite underwhelming, really. Though I find pretty much everything Sufjan does to be quite interesting, I'm not getting much out of this.

I'll probably give it another listen later.

Sounds like a bunch of garbage to me. The worst song he's ever done, and that's saying something. He has tons of talent, but he should leave the rocking to those that are already good at it.

I doubt this is a new direction he's taking overall, it sounds like it was something fun he put together just to do something different. I think it's kind of fun.

He better get on with the other 48 states though.

I don't care what his new stuff sounds like as long as he drops the pretentious long song titles. If not he can go fuck himself

I agree.

It also sounds like nearly everything The Believer puts on their annual music issue CDs... unlistenable. But that won't stop me from buying this year's issue. In fact, I was going to check today to see if my local bookstore has it yet.

What exactly is The Believer anyway?
