Sufjan Stevens Songs for Christmas Stream


Welcome to the second (and probably last) installment of: USOUNDS Presents X-mas Music That Does Not Blow.  Fortunately for all of us, Sufjan is also repelled by traditional Christmas music.  Here’s the stream to Songs for Christmas; the album also hits stores today.

Check this shit out:

• Five individually packaged CD EPs
• Five Christmas stickers
• Extensive liner notes and short stories by Sufjan Stevens
• An original Christmas essay by Rick Moody
• An animated music video and comic strip by Tom Eaton
• A Christmas Songbook with lyric sheets and chord charts–so you can sing along too
• An original Christmas Family Portrait painting of Santa Sufjan by Jacques Bredy
