Impossible Soul

If you’re ever in need of a half-hour psychological treatment via music, listen to Sufjan Stevens’ Impossible SoulIt places juxtapositions and polar opposites side by side throughout a honest musical journey, and it’s full of unabashed affection, from the gentle vocals to the steady electronic swipes. (Perhaps the song describes grief, or self-doubt, or something in between. The subject matter doesn’t affect the experience much, though—the journey speaks for itself. Love is not so impossible).

The result is a whole, immense, cathartic breath.
