Sufjan Stevens does the nearly impossible on his new CD: He finds his way back to his song structure while incorporating a good deal of the intricate and fascinating little bits and bobs that he's utilized over the years.

It's difficult for me to retain any semblance of journalistic objectivity when it comes to The Sundresses. My first exposure to their special brand of madness was at my first South By Southwest in 2004, which happened to be the band’s first SXSW, as well, and only their eighth or ninth out of town gig at that point. In 45 sweat-soaked minutes, The Sundresses reordered my musical universe and won me over completely. Perhaps it's fitting then that the new Sundresses album, 'Sundresses Off,' is a live offering that showcases the band's performance gifts with the visceral wallop that can only be achieved in front of their amps.
