Sufjan Stevens Vinyl, CD & tapes from Norman Records

With more projects and feelings than time itself, Sufjan Stevens strikes as a relatable figure. He’s tried, in vain, to write fifty records for fifty states (striking out at two), made song suites for American turnpikes, performed his movie songs at the Oscars, written countless solo records, sung odes to the planets and also he can play the banjo. Phew. His baroque pop symphonies and heartfelt synth-pop has made him a canonical figure in the indie rock world, and his recent, solitary record ‘Carrie & Lowell’ rivalled even Elliott Smith as an emo folk classic. He runs Asthmatic Kitty, too, a label dedicated to a new strand of rock whimsy. A legend, to be honest.

Similar to Sufjan Stevens:

The National, Fleet Foxes, Father John Misty, Grizzly Bear, St. Vincent, Elliott Smith, S. Carey, Beirut, Sharon Van Etten, Andrew Bird, Perfume Genius, Ariel Pink

Blue Bucket of Gold / Hotline Bling (feat. Gallant)

Sufjan Stevens recently released the live concert film of Carrie & Lowell Live, and this release includes a digital download for the entire audio of that set. But what's on the actual wax? Well that would be ‘Blue Bucket Of Gold’ on one side and a slightly surprising cover of Drake&rsquo...view item »

Sufjan Stevens
Tonya Harding

Someone doesn't like Sufjan Stevens and it's a shame that it happens to be Tonya Harding who hates the song. Oh and the people who made the documentary about her who rejected it as part of the soundtrack. But it's ok, Sufjan. We still like you.   Strange format this. 7" makes sense but cassingle? Well it's a nice collectors thi...view item »

Sufjan Stevens
The Greatest Gift

Oh lord, dear lord. If you are still drying your eyes from last years Carrie & Lowell record, then prepare to get them all wet with this companion record which comprises of outtakes from that record alongside alternate versions and remixes presented in a sort of mixtape format. It's a hodge podge then but the perfect place to get mor...view item »

Sufjan Stevens
The Age of Adz

Way, way back in the day when Norman Records was in black and white, we huddled round the coal fire listening to a gramophone recording of an album called 'Michigan' by a man we'd never heard of. I recall many a long evening wondering who this man was and why I'd never heard of anyone called 'Sufjan' before. Fast forward into the technicolour di...view item »

Sufjan Stevens & Ryuichi Sakamoto / Various
Call Me By Your Name

Well this is a mess. Sold into us as a collaboration between American indie darling Sufjan Stevens and Japanese contemporary legend Ryuichi Sakamoto this is actually a Various Artists soundtrack with two Sakamoto tracks and three Sufjan tracks. There's other people on like...er...er The Psychedelic ...view item »

Sufjan Stevens, Bryce Dessner, Nico Muhly, James McAlister
Planetarium

A couple of light years ago, in my fabled adult teen years, I actually saw Sufjan, Bryce and Nico debut their Planetarium project to a crowded room most likely expecting some symphonic derivations of “Chicago”. A concerted effort to marry Sufjan’s twee anthems, Bryce’s home-away-from-home compositional tryouts an...view item »

Sufjan Stevens
The Avalanche

About 250000 of you bought that last Sufjan Stevens album. Consequently if you want him to play at your party you'll need to mortgage your house just to get him to knock at the front door and even then there's no promise he'll bring his guitar. In the absence of a new album Rough Trade and Asthmatic Kitty have teamed t...view item »

Sufjan Stevens
Carrie & Lowell

Sufjan Stevens has always been a solo artist, but he has never made a solo album. With American states as his muse and orchestras of the Danielson Famile as his sidekicks, he has never had a musical private life. In a recent interview with Pitchfork, he addressed the juxtaposition: “some people h...view item »

Sufjan Stevens
All Delighted People

Sufjan Stevens' new one sounds amazing. The first track alone has more ideas and originality than a million other twats I don care to mention. His creative output has been super pretty much from the get-go and this record is superb too. The first track 'All Delighted People (Original Version)' references the classic "Sounds of Silence" by Simon ...view item »

Sufjan Stevens
Greetings From Michigan

Now a brilliant and only slightly bizarre re-issue from Sufjan Stevens. Its the "Michigan" album which originally came out on Asthmatic Kitty but has now come out on Rough Trade (with two bonus tracks). What can I say? This was my favourite album of last year. Its an inventive, playful, tuneful work of sheer brilliance. ...view item »

Sufjan Stevens
Illinoise

So I'm brilliant. Have you heard? I'm years ahead of my time. Good old me eh? You probably don't remember me rabbiting on and on droning endlessly about Sufjan Stevens 'Michigan' album years and years ago. Before you could even be bothered to be born. Hang on,   I think I'm turning into Everett True. Anyway here's Sufjan'...view item »
