Sufjan Stevens - The Avalanche [2LP] (Hatchback Orange And Avalanche White Colored Vinyl, limited)
Limited Edition Hatchback Orange & Avalanche White Vinyl Double LP!
Released in 2006 as a follow-up to Sufjan Stevens’ 2005 Illinois, Asthmatic Kitty Records finally releases Avalanche on vinyl - colored vinyl no less. The first LP is pressed on Hatchback Orange Vinyl and the second LP on Avalanche White Vinyl.
With gratitude, Avalanche is presented here as a 2xLP a mere twelve years after its release, complete with all 21 songs from the original release.
“Even this album of leftovers stands against (and eclipses) what just about every other indie-pop act will put out this year.” - AV Club
“The songs on Avalanche are nearly as good as the ones on Illinois, although with surprising synth bursts and craggy guitar noise that were sandpapered off of its predecessor.” - SPIN
“Most of these songs are just as good, if not better, than the ones that actually made the cut.” - E Online
“All the songs here are fully realized and often the equal of those on their parent album.” - Observer
