Includes bonus 7″ of two Sufjan songs from the Seven Swans sessions that are not available in any other format. Multi-instrumentalist Sufjan Stevens made a couple of records that slipped under the radar before his third, the astoundingly lush post-rock concept album Greetings From Michigan (2003), gained him critical attention and cult status. Seemingly bent on not repeating himself, Stevens scaled down Michigan's grandeur to a minimalist palette for Seven Swans (2004). Where the previous album was instrumentally comparable to Tortoise or Stereolab, Seven Swans is practically lo-fi, based around simply strummed acoustic guitars, banjo, organ, and hushed vocals. It's more akin to laconic Americana troubadours like Will Oldham and Iron & Wine, though no amount of sonic slimming-down can disguise Stevens's knack for crafty arrangements and accessibly quirky songs. Like-minded spirit Daniel Smith of the Danielson Family produced, and other Family members provide accompaniment that's considerably more structured than their own free-wheeling recordings.
First pressing of 500 copies on Cookies and Cream vinyl, light yellow with black marble in a gatefold jacket. The long, long awaited second album from the Brighton/Kent, UK-based five piece. Four tracks spread over an hour, taking you on an incredible, musical journey. Under Summer finds yndi halda developing the sound established on enjoy eternal bliss and incorporating sparse vocal elements into their instrumental palette. A perfect winter soundtrack. Due to arrive for a March 2016 release.
