Sufjan Stevens – Justice Delivers Its Gift

“Justice Delivers Its Gift”, from Sujfan Steven’s upcoming Christmas album Silver & Gold (out Nov. 13) is beautiful and haunting. It sounds similar to songs off his All Delighted People EP. Though this song isn’t like the other cheerful Christmas songs we usually hear it is a fitting and meaningful song for the season. It’s good to be joyful but it’s also good to be contemplative. We need both. Sufjan calls us in this song to reconsider what we value here on earth.

The Tallest Man On Earth

The Tallest Man On Earth aka Kristian Matsson is one of my favorite singer-songwriters. His vocals and music are reminiscent of Bob Dylan but he definitely is a unique artist. Matsson pushes his vocal range further with this new single “1904”. He sings at a higher register at some parts of the song to great effect. The music in this song is uplifting and pleasant to listen to. What I love about The Tallest Man On Earth’s music is his lyrics. The lyrics are vague enough to be open to interpretation and are also rich with images and meaning. There are always new things to discover when you revisit a song by Matsson. I’m greatly anticipating his new album There’s No Leaving Now, which comes out June 12th.
