In 2004, Sounds Familyre released Sufjan Stevens' Seven Swans. And yesterday, micro-label On Joyful Wings released Sevens Swans Reimagined. They've gathered quite the cabal of artists who have managed to dive into the Seven Swans material and fish from it some intriguing interpretations of the 2004 record. Appearances include Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, Unwed Sailor, Inlets, and the David Crowder Band, but also our own Half-handed Cloud, Shannon Stephens, and DM Stith. It's quite good!
Profits from the album benefit the Susan G. Komen For The Cure breast cancer foundation.

It sounds interesting. I honestly don't think I need to see him unless it's an Illinois/retrospective show at this point. The last tour was so perfect, I would love to keep that as my image of him live.

The only time I've seen a band perform a live film score was right after Coachella '09 when Throbbing Gristle did their score to In the Shadow of the Sun at the Montalban. To this day it remains one of the most overwhelmingly haunting, beautiful, and disturbing things I've experienced in live music.

Sufjan Stevens teams up with Son Lux and Serengeti for EP
Bet you never expected this headline: Sufjan Stevens is collaborating with a rapper on a new EP. Under the moniker s / s / s, Stevens has teamed with Chicago MC Serengeti and Indianapolis indie rockers Son Lux for a four-track effort, Beak & Claws, according to Pitchfork.
In addition to the three principal players, the EP features guest appearances from My Brightest Diamond’s Shara Worden and Themselves’ Doseone. It will be released on March 20th by Anticon, which is the home of both Serengeti and Son Lux.
As Pitchfork points out, Sufjan and Serengeti are no strangers to one another, having previously worked together on Buck 65′s remix of Sufjan’s cover of Castanets’ “You Are the Blood”. Find that remix below, followed by the EP’s tracklist.
Beak & Claw EP Tracklist:
01. Museum Day
02. Beyond Any Doubt
