Q: What Kind of Music Do You Listen To? A: Oh, You Know, Everything, Really. My Favorite is Probably Post-Indie, Though.

I’m still not quite sure what I think of this new Sufjan Stevens song, other than that it’s nowhere near as good as this Belle and Sebastian song of the same name. On one hand, I’m a huge sucker for seven-plus-minute pop songs, but on the other hand, it doesn’t really count when half of it is spent making noise that never quite turns into anything else, regardless of how badly you want it to, ultimately confirming the hunch you always had that Stevens employs such a huge band more because he thinks it looks really cool and less because he actually has any idea how to use it. Whatever, though. Maybe that’s just what “post-indie” is all about, you know?
