Sufjan Stevens Christmas compilation - Hear It Here

You’re probably asking yourself, ‘Just how quirky is Sufjan Stevens’ new Christmas compilation, Silver and Gold: Songs for Christmas, Vols. 6-10?’

Well, rather than spoil the fun and answer that question for you, let’s take a look at a few tracks.


What's on 'Cougar Town' star Busy Phillips' iPod? Beach House, Sufjan, The Band, and more

So considering that fact, and the fact that Cougar is returning from hiatus this coming Tuesday, April 18 in a special, we-need-viewers timeslot after Dancing with the Stars, we thought it more than high time to see what trips her fine-tuned musical trigger.

Sufjan Stevens throws a dance party: Watch his 'Too Much' video here

On his latest album, The Age of Adz, indie-folk darling Sufjan Stevens embellishes his tunes with all manner of extravagant electronic frippery. Now he has a video to match.

The new clip for standout Adz track “Too Much” is a manic neon blur. A blank-looking Sufjan and assorted dancers writhe about wildly while wearing bright-hued fabrics. Costumes include a sleeveless t-shirt/indoor sunglasses combo and a freaky demon-head mask like the one in that absurd MC Hammer video.

Overall it’s an unusual look for Stevens. Then again, The Age of Adz is an unusual album for him, and after a few listens I learned to love it. Check out the “Too Much” video after the jump (via Pitchfork) and let us know what you think: Too much, not enough, or just right? READ FULL STORY
