I hate seeing anything Christmas related until after Thanksgiving. The neighbors who put up Christmas decorations prior to that day are gauche, tactless people. And here comes Sufjan with his guaranteed-to-make-you-cry interpretation of “I’ll be Home for Christmas” way before Christmas should even enter our consciousness. And this version is depressing as hell, so how’s that going to get you in the spirit? This disturbing video certainly won’t help matters. But the man does have a new Christmas album to hawk, so he’s prepping early. Commerce comes first.
