Current Music: Sufjan Stevens - Illinois
Stars = My obsession as of now.
Rightly so. It wasn't released this year but 'Elevator Love Letter' is so, so beautiful.
My favourite is "Calender Girl". It's another amazingly beautiful one. They really do well in that genre, huh?
I totally agree about Arcade Fire's 'Funeral' being one of the best albums of the year. And they're so amazing live!
Sufjan Stevens rocks. What's your favourite tracks off Illinois? I love 'Casimir Pulaski Day' and 'Decatur'.
I love the title track, it's so uplifting! Casimir and Man Of Metropolis are my other current two faves, but it changes with each listen.
