A couple of weeks ago I was offered a last-minute ticket to see Sufjan Stevens play the Royal Festival Hall. I jumped at the chance, and it was one of the most amazing live music experiences of my entire life. This review from the Independent almost captures it, but I’m going to be replaying it in my head for the rest of my life. Hell of a show.
Since then, I’ve revisted his recent album The Age of Adz with fresh ears, concluding that I bloody love it. Here’s one of my favourite tracks, Get Real Get Right. This blew my socks off live – three trombones! Three!
