All Delighted People



Not that you needed me to pass this along, but here it is anyway. Asthmatic Kitty describes the EP (not an EP) thusly:
All Delighted People is built around two different versions of Sufjan’s long-form epic ballad "All Delighted People," a dramatic homage to the Apocalypse, existential ennui, and Paul Simon’s "Sounds of Silence." Sounds delightful, yes! The song was originally workshopped (oh we hate making workshop a verb, but time is money!) on Sufjan’s previous tour in the fall of 2009. Other songs on the EP include the 17-minute guitar jam-for-single-mothers "Djohariah," and the gothic piano ballad "The Owl and the Tanager," a live-show mainstay (and Debbie Downer if you ask us; what’s it doing on a "Delighted" EP?). Raise Your Hands!
Yes, that's a "17-minute guitar jam-for-single-mothers". What more could want on a Friday morning?
