Song: Sufjan Stevens, "I Want To Be Well"
Context: I'm finally getting around to hearing the new Sufjan Stevens record while editing a feature on him for next week's paper. Am I the only one that noticed you could slip an of Montreal song in the middle of The Age Of Adz without anyone noticing? Seriously, it's that Barnesesque, from the vocals to the song structure to the way the electronic instrumentation is layered. Listen to this track, the one where he alienates all his Christian fans by saying he's not fucking around like 20 times and tell me we couldn't slip it into Skeletal Lamping right before "Mingusings." 10 - I Want To Be Well by bored4music3
