With a new album around the corner, you might be put into the mindset that folk singer-songwriter Sufjan Steven's new EP is just a dumping ground for the filler not good enough for his LP. You may be right, I obviously haven't heard the new album yet, but I do know that the All Delighted People EP is actually quite fantastic. Simply put, it's a joy to listen to. The title track, the alternate version of the title track, the 17-minute closer Djohariah, they all are quite excellent and have definitely left me feeling pretty excited about what he has in store for us with The Age of Adz.
Oh, and did I mention that this EP is only $5 and it's over 60 minutes long? Hell you can even stream the whole thing for free. Check out his Bandcamp Page to purchase or listen to it, even if you're holding out for The Age of Adz, you won't regret it.
