My computer is broken which means I can't load all my xmas music back onto my phone. As such, it's been a sadly Sufjan-less holiday season for me. 🙁
Christmas is kinda weird. But that's okay.
However, at this point, I feel like I'm the Christmas Unicorn.
But that's okay. You're the Christmas Unicorn too.
It's alright, I love you.
Danielson (or, rather, the act of listening to music by the Danielson Famile) can occasionally feel like a "weird for its own sake" thing. The dude sings in this weird, awkward, squeaky falsetto, and the lyrics often seem childish on the surface. He often wears a nine foot tall tree costume on stage. There's a lot of depth here, though.
Daniel sings Christian music, but his style is so... different that the mainstream Christian music market has pretty much entirely forsaken him (I recall back in the day, a Christian radio station I listened to called one of his songs the worst song they had ever heard). Then again, Sufjan Stevens has been an on again, off again member of the collective for a long time now, so I guess he must be doing something right.
He was the subject of an occasionally interesting documentary a few years ago, appropriately called Danielson: A Family Movie.
I am expecting divisive opinions regarding this song.
this is just weird enough for me to like it.
