Sufjan Stevens playing Prospect Park, touring Europe w/ DM Stith +++ ‘Seven Swans Reimagined’ out now (listen)
“In 2004, Sounds Familyre released Sufjan Stevens‘ Seven Swans. And [last week], 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!
