Sufjan Stevens 'The Avalanche' 2xLP

Sufjan Stevens 'The Avalanche' 2xLP
Released in 2006 as a follow-up to Sufjan Stevens’ 2005 album ‘Illinois’, Asthmatic Kitty Records finally release ‘Avalanche’ on vinyl.

Initially conceived as part of a double album version of ‘Illinois’, ‘Avalanche’ instead became a ‘companion’ to ‘Illinois’. Take ‘The Mistress Witch’ or ‘Saul Bellow’, both of which could have lived on the 2003 ‘Michigan’ as much as on ‘Illinois’. One can hear Sufjan’s 2004 ‘Enjoy Your Rabbit’ in ‘The Undivided Self’. And the band jam on ‘Springfield’ looks forward to 2010’s ‘All Delighted People’. Then there’s ‘Pittsfield’ which, at least lyrically, foreshadows the more personal themes of 2015’s ‘Carrie & Lowell’.

All that to say, a vinyl release of Avalanche is long overdue. With gratitude, Asthmatic Kitty happily present ‘Avalanche’ as a 2xLP a mere twelve years after its release, complete with all 21 songs from the original release, including the three versions of ‘Chicago’.

Deluxe coloured vinyl edition.
