Sufjan Stevens is playing at the Uptown on October 17. You've only got a month to get adjusted to Sufjan's revamped sound! Check out the stream of The Age of Adz from NPR, and you'll find the album opening with a beautifully meandering track that sounds a bit like the melancholy depression of Michigan, disembodied and abstracted into a less immediate, human sound. The next number finds Sufjan's signature "Chicago" exuberance, amplified with electronic confetti. After that, you're on your own, kids.
Stream The Age of Adz after the jump.
