The unfortunate audience to a string of recent spectaculars by Mother Nature (hurricanes, snowstorms, hailstorms, you name it…), the City That Never Sleeps never once yielded its dance ambitions. Bound together by glowstick-lit nights and work-free days, New Yorkers kept each other warm in our time off, dancing with the best at Lavo or Cipriani hurricane-night, sharing showers and electric with others at our gyms, offering shelter to our friends without power. And despite some severe changes to our norms, New Yorkers everywhere stopped what they were doing to help one another. So here, a mix to toast the warmth felt in full during a time of need… Cheers! :)

EVENT: Sufjan Stevens comes caroling

This isn’t the type of music I typically write about, but I can’t help but share my love for Sufjan Stevens. The Detroit-native studied at the prestigious Interlochen Arts Academy, then Hope College, and eventually attained an MFA at The New School. But besides his impressive resume, Sufjan (which means ‘comes with a sword’ in Persian and Arabic) writes, sings, and plays more instruments than you can count on your fingers — oftentimes playing the parts of his pieces himself, overlapping the recordings and merging them into one painstakingly-tedious, beautiful work of art.

This year, the usually quiet and inconspicuous Sufjan announced a tour titled, “The Sirfjam Stephanapolous Christmas Sing-A-Long Seasonal Affective Disorder Spectacular Music Pageant Variety Show Disaster” (tickets after the jump!) to promote the expansion of a 2006 album, “Songs for Christmas: Vols. 1-5”, this part entitled, “Silver & Gold”, to be released by his label Asthmatic Kitty Records November 13. Here are some of my favorites of his previously-released carols, followed by some super-sweet mixes… So be sure to catch him live — it’s a lucky chance!

★ Sujfan Stevens – Sister Winter
♬ Sufjan Stevens – Amazing Grace

Can’t get over how good the Shigeto mix is…and always diggin’ the Yeah Yeah Yeahs!

★ Sufjan Stevens – Futile Devices (Shigeto Remix)
♬ Sufjan Stevens vs. Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Maps To Chicago (Radioface Edit)
