So, as many of you know, this site gets its name from quite possibly the most epically beautiful song of all time; Sufjan Stevens’ “Chicago.” While Sufjan himself has remixed his own masterpiece (see: Easy Listening Version, Acoustic Version, etc.), nothing truly held a candle to the original. That still holds true, but we can’t blame others for trying. You may wonder where I am going with this, so I’ll cut to the chase: Chiddy Bang is starting to build a rep for tackling some of the most interesting indie jams, sampling Passion Pit’s “Better Things” and MGMT’s “Kids” (chronicled here). The group just kicked it up a level with their newest jam, you guessed it…”All Things Go.”
Ok, so the rapping is not top notch. IT’S FUCKING SUFJAN STEVENS IN A RAP SONG. GO. LISTEN. NOW!
