Well hello there new song Sufjan! You’re giving us such pleasure. Who needs a proper video, when you can have a great new song and watch the small waves coming in at a stoney shore. This is the Sufjan we all started to love with his first albums. Heartwarming stuff!
And all I’ve wanted my whole damn life is something like this to materialise
and all I’ve wanted my whole damn life is love and luck to collide
all I’ve ever needed is to be part of something meaningful
all I’ve ever wanted is to leave this world more
(The Smith Street Band – I Love Life)
It was sometime in the late summer of last year. Me and a few other guys, some of which I hardly knew, crammed into a small car and drove to Bielefeld. If you have ever been there, you probably know that this is not a city where you most likely want to spend a nice evening. But we had a goal: Together with two or three local bands, the amazing Apologies, I Have None were set to play at a youth centre. And they did, they did very well indeed. The highlight of the evening was another band, though: The Smith Street Band from Melbourne, Australia.
