Weekly Music: ‘Tis the season

Sufjan Steven’s new Christmas album, Silver & Gold, is five flippin’ discs of awesome and weird, just as I’d expect it to be. The Coventry Carol was always my favorite to sing in choir during the holidays, and I love the banjo. If you’re not into traditional Christmas tunes, he has modern jams on there as well that are hardly holiday-ish.

Also really diggin Michael Kiwanuka lately, his smooth voice is relaxing and perfect for those cold evenings (insert eye rolls directed at me from everyone outside of LA) when you feel like being a hermit.
