If you were thinking about Googling the new collaboration between Sufjan Stevens, Son Lux, and Serengeti, well, you’re shit out of luck. It’s called s / s / s. Hell, Son Lux isn’t even sure how to say it. So good luck with figuring out how to search it.
Luckily, you don’t need to search. You can stream the track “Museum Day,” from the forthcoming Beak and Claw EP, right here.
It’s an interesting song, featuring an auto-tuned Sufjan (apparently he didn’t get the auto-tune out of his system with 2010’s The Age of Adz), Serengeti doing more of a spoken word thing than rapping, and Son Lux being, well, Son Lux. Here’s Son Lux’s list of what he does in addition to singing (which he does both straight into a mic and through a pitch-shifter): “piano, bowed glass, mod’ed boy-choir mellotron with the portamento engaged, strings, chopped noise, drum kit, bass, and i think some other things.” That pretty much gives you a good indication of what you’re in for if you’re not already listening to the tune.
Beak and Claw comes out March 20 on Anticon.
