The Age of Adz has been a polarizing experience for fans of Sufjan Stevens, either turning them away from the former-folky turned heartbroken musical scientist, or, exciting them for the future. If you haven’t heard it or picked a side, watch his performance of “Too Much” on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night. It’s a performance the asks the question after about ten seconds: are you in or are you out?
But honestly, the most fun part of this clip was picking what part to screen-grab for our image up top. The hand-clapping bit? Sufjan’s crane dance moves? The triumphant fist pump at the end (it was his first network television performance, surprisingly)? No, I went with the big finish/Sufjan pretending to be a bat. Enjoy this tune, it sounds even better on the video than it did in concert (via The Audio Perv ).
