SUFJAN STEVENS & LOWELL BRAMS - APORIA VINYL (LTD. ED. FIRST-RUN YELLOW)
LIMITED EDITION FIRST-RUN YELLOW VINYL
Release Date: 27th March 2020
"‘Aporia’ is a New Age album from Sufjan Stevens and his step-father and record label co-owner, Lowell Brams. In the spirit of the New Age composers who sanded off the edges of their synths’ sawtooth waves, Aporia approximates a rich soundtrack from an imagined sci-fi epic brimming with moody, hooky, gauzy synthesizer soundscapes. The album may suggest the progeny of a John Carpenter, Wendy Carlos and Mike Oldfield marriage but it stands apart from these touchstones and generates a meditative universe all its own. This is no mere curio in the Sufjan Stevens catalogue but a fully realized collaborative musical piece. “Sufjan Stevens is one of the most prolific and absolutely gifted American songwriters of the 21st century.” - NPR “Stevens remains at the height of his powers - capable of work as individual, compassionate and powerful as any American composer working today.” - The Washington Post."
