Sufjan Stevens releasing Christmas box set - MP3 available!


Any self-respecting mix-tape maker would have already heard a few tracks from Sufjan's large body of Christmas songs while assembling their own "holiday" mix, so the emergence of this album should come as no surprise. I don't blame Asthmatic Kitty for cashing in, considering that a) These tracks are downloaded like crazy every year and b) Sufjan Stevens is still insanely popular, backlash be damned. You can read about all the details of the five-disc set, which includes stickers, essays, lyrics sheets and chord charts, and oh yeah, the music, right here. But, if you're the Grinch who wants to steal Christmas from Sufjan, you can download 3 of the EPs here at Irresponsible Journalism.

Personally, I'm pretty excited about the release of this set. Besides the annual Pedro the Lion 7 inch releases, no one is really doing interesting, heartfelt holiday songs. So as they say, the more the merrier.

MP3: That was the worst Christmas ever!

I am ashamed to say that I hadn't heard these before. However, now that I have, I feel more complete :)
