Sufjan & step-pops go all new age on us, soaring through sonic fields & embracing the uplifting lightness of ambient.

in the spirit of the new age composers who sanded off the edges of their synths’ sawtooth waves, ‘aporia’ approximates a rich soundtrack from an imagined sci-fi epic brimming with moody, hooky, gauzy synthesiser soundscapes. the album may suggest the progeny of a john carpenter, wendy carlos, and mike oldfield marriage, but it stands apart from these touchstones and generates a meditative universe all its own. this is no mere curio in the sufjan stevens catalog - but a fully realized collaborative musical piece.
