Sufjan Stevens – The Age of Adz – Album Stream

Thought you might be into listening to his new album all the way through, we were, and still are. Some of you might think this newest set of tracks are a bit over-blown, but I, Bear, feel these are some of his most accomplished and intriguing songs of his already lofty career.

Braid Interview – History, Reunion, Re-Issues

Braid was a highly influential emo/post-hardcore band from Illinois that helped define the genre in the mid to late 90s. The band played four final shows in 1999 before disbanding.
