Song of the Day 28: Sufjan Stevens - The Age of Adz

Sufjan Stevens is undoubtedly one of the most unique artists in the music scene today. On his critically acclaimed record Illinois he blew everybody else out of the water with his insanely intricate and beautiful music composed of booming orchestras and zooming synths. On his 2010 record he explored the more synth-oriented portions of his former records and kicked it up a notch. The title track from The Age of Adz is a perfect example of this progression in its 8 minutes of pure electronic and orchestral bliss.
