Sufjan Stevens "America" 12"
"Stevens’ new song, which is called 'America,' feels similarly haunted. Its 12 minutes are filled with rhetorical questions and biblical allusions as he returns to subjects he’s revisited again and again, casting them all as signs of the apocalypse. 'The dove flew to me like a vision of paranoia,' he sings, and nothing in the song’s characteristically sprawling arsenal—its symphonic slow-build, its sea of recorders, its climactic, singalong chorus—seems able to soothe his fears." - Pitchfork (Best New Track)
