Live Performance On Translucent Blue 12" Vinyl!
Asthmatic Kitty Records is pleased to announce Carrie & Lowell Live, an audio
and visual document of Sufjan's November 9, 2015 performance at North Charleston
Performing Arts Center in South Carolina. The translucent blue 12" release
includes "Blue Bucket of Gold" on one side, a cover of Drake's "Hotline Bling"
featuring Gallant on Side B, and a digital download to the full 16-track set.
The show, which was designed by Marc Janowitz, incorporated an expansive
lighting display and cathedral-like LED columns featuring home videos shot by
Sufjan's maternal grandfather, Nick Marabeas. Much of this vintage footage
highlights family birthdays, graduations, and weddings of Carrie and her
siblings from the late 1940s through the early 1970s, lending the performances
the emotional arc of a memorial, celebrating Carrie's life and meditating on her
death with a sweeping transcendence that gave testament to Sufjan's central
thesis of mourning: that in spite of death, we must go on living in fullness and
"Documenting the South Carolina stop of the Carrie & Lowell tour, this
audiovisual album takes a record that thrived on simplicity and adorns it with
glowsticks, but each track retains a subtle beauty." - Pitchfork
"Ingenious arrangements illuminate the songs." - Independent
