Sufjan Stevens - The BQE LP

Sufjan Stevens is back with a new project called "The BQE", a cinematic suite inspired by the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway and the Hula-Hoop.

Orginally performed 2 years ago live "The BQE" is about everything you can imagine, in the words of Asthmatic Kitty: " described as a grand creative franchise-incorporating movie, symphony, comic book, dissertation, photography, graphic design, and a 3-D Viewmaster® reel-in which a songwriter's interrogation of one of New York's ugliest landmarks expands athletically to forums and formulas outside of the song itself. In fact, the BQE is everything but a song."

Sounds intriguing right? Well, this limited edition vinyl is available as a double gatefold and includes the soundtrack on 180-gram vinyl, a large-scale 32-page booklet with liner notes and photographs, and a black-and-white version of the 40-page Hooper Heroes comic book. Pre-order it for $25 (S&H included) from Asthmatic Kitty
