Sufjan Stevens - Star Spangled Banner

Remember that time Sufjan Stevens wrote that BLEEPYBLOOP album AGE OF ADZ, and every1 was like, "Why don't u make the music that captures the sadness, frustation, and hope of a Midwestern existence again? You know, the type of shit with all those zany instruments and women/children vocal choruses." Maybe this Star Spangled Banner is his was 2 reconnect with America, bc as far as I'm concerned, his career is a failure until he records at least a song/EP/LP for every one of the 50 states.

I guess he is just trying to capitalize off that Obama liberal indie buzz by releasing this the day after the election.

Can't tell if this is 'chill/kewl' or if he sorta ruined it. I guess the only way to tell is to let him perform it live at the Super Bowl and see if people boo or cheer.

I just hope he doesn't wear neon shit anymore. Never vibed 2 that gimmick.
