Sufjan Stevens, Asthmatic Kitty and Sounds Familyre announce Sufjan's third full-length album, a collection of songs for his birth-state, Michigan, The Great Lake State. Composed as a geographical tone poem, Michigan follows a metaphysical expedition through the idiosyncrasies of Middle America. Drawing from personal anecdote, regional history and state heritage, Stevens mixes social and political grievances with songs about snowmobiles, Henry Ford, the Detroit race riots and love. Michigan's songs resonate with a range of sources – Vince Guaraldi, Terry Riley and Nick Drake – in executing Stevens' peculiar palette that is simultaneously rock and bluegrass, jazz and pop, a style The Village Voice appraises as "Arthur Lee meets the Book of Psalms."
