Originally released in 2001 before ‘Michigan’ and ‘Illinois’, Sufjan Steven’s ‘Enjoy Your Rabbit’ foretells his 2010 electronic ‘Age Of Adz’. Though overlooked by many, there are fans who regard ‘Enjoy Your Rabbit’ as Sufjan’s greatest work.
Departing from the singer-songwriter format of his debut Asthmatic Kitty Records album, ‘A Sun Came’, this is a collection of fourteen colourful instrumental compositions combining Sufjan’s noted gift for melody with electronic sounds to create an unusually playful and human - not to mention humane - electronic experience. Great for dancing, driving, writing, cooking, painting, running, walking and, of course, eating Chinese food, ‘... Rabbit’ features nearly eighty minutes of music that will truly soothe the savage breast, whatever that means.
Initial copies come in randomly allocated red/clear, green/clear, white/clear and blue/clear coloured vinyl sets. Which one will you get?
