sufjan interview

Sufjan Stevens was recently interviewed by and revealed that although the rumors are not true that he will be retireing, he does have a certain animosity towards music and what seems like life in general at the moment.

Some quotes:

– “What’s the point of making music anymore? I feel that the album no longer has a stronghold or has any real bearing anymore.”

– “…me versus my work, y’know? And I don’t think I can win; I feel like it’s a losing battle…”

– “But for myself, I definitely feel a kind of claustrophobia because of the excess in our culture and the availability of so much.”

Is Sufjan now playing the role of Conor Oberst?
