New Sufjan Stevens EP!

All Delighted People EP

Available today digitally at Bandcamp for stream or digital purchase for $5. 

Or, wait for it to hit Amazon and other digital outlets.

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 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?).

New Fleet Foxes songs, kind of

Fleet Foxes' Robin Pecknold has been on tour with Joanna Newsom, and recently posted a short tour documentary.  There is some great footage of him playing some new tunes - some of which have been floating around for a pit.  They are definitely worth checking out, regardless.  Also, skip to the bottom for a few live MP3s of new tunes, via We All Want Someone to Shout For and Pitchfork Media.

The video embed has been disabled, so go over to Fleetfoxes.com to watch it.
