Sufjan Stevens

I thought I saw a thread about him....can't find it.


Anyone have the "leaked" version of Illinois (MP3)?

I have heard "Come on feel the Illinoise" but want to hear more.

Here are three teasers from the album. I downloaded it from the web about 1 month ago or so, but don't worry folks, I will buy it when it comes out next month.

Sufjan Stevens - 3 tracks

How did you get your hands on it?

Peoria

I read a post on a Champaign music board that listed the titles of the tracks...even for those of us who only spent a short time in the state, it cracked me up (and also got me even more excited to hear the album). Something about "your mother from Decatur" or something......

Never been to Jacksonville. I haven't been many places in Illinois south of the south side or north of north shore, except for Champaign-Urbana where I went to college.

I still love this album, by the way. Pitchfork (which I read, but don't always agree with), rates it very highly, so far their album of the year.
