    We Are What You Say
    Soundtrack to the week has been A Sun Came, Sufjan Stevens' first album, now reissued, and its majestic opening song with its delight of banjos and surreally spiritual lyrics:

    We are a servant, we have a song
    The side of a beehive, a tabernacle choir
    We are the sound working in wars
    the bishop is gone to the acolyte shores
    We save our Bibles, we pull our sleeves
    The word is a guard and the guard is a cleave
    We are what you say.

    It's on limited re-release and if you've found yourself blessed by Michigan and Seven Swans, you'll be blessed by this too...
