Songs for Christmas: Sufjan Stevens


Sufjan Stevens is basically a genius of Indie music—period. This Christmas 5 CD box set (with goodies galore) has been out for several years, but it does not lose its humble lustre. Some songs are weak, some are strong; but listening to these fill me with a sense of goodness and a self-choosen blanket of melencholy—think Peanuts. If you have not imbibed, then know the water is fine (if a bit frozen) and you will enjoy the renewal as you see Christmas and likely yourself, in an ancient yet brand new light.    

Yes, yes I know; I could write the taglines for those annoying motivational posters. 

Recording traditional favorites alongside unique originals, Sufjan has, over the course of five years, constructed an odd, impressive, and compelling collection of Christmas hits (and some misses) that will either warm your heart or make you throw up eggnog all over the bath mat (depending on your constitution).  You can order just the MP3 version for $12 here. And don’t forget our Xmas site, with a full, free stream of the Christmas box set and lots of games, here.
