Music for your Midweek: Sufjan Stevens and Chris Thile

This song is a match made in heaven. Sufjan Steven's The Age of Adz has a special place in my heart. I listened to that album constantly when I was living at Aspen Grove. It's the soundtrack to my daily drives through Provo Canyon and the Alpine Loop. I watched him perform at Kingsbury Hall and was mesmerized. Sufjan has become progressively weird and great. I've loved seeing his transformation.

Later that month, I discovered Punch Brothers while listening to Prairie Home Companion. And their album Antifogmatic became another driving soundtrack. Little did I know that these two musical worlds would one day meet!

Here's Chris Thile and Gabriel Kahane covering "Impossible Soul". Well, the first 4 minutes of it. I know the video looks a little rough, but when the music starts, it comes through pretty clear. Enjoy:
