VOTD: Sufjan Stevens’ ‘Get Real, Get Right’

Cartoons ... they’re for paranoid schizophrenics, too!

From last year’s very bizarre departure “The Age of Adz,” Sufjan Stevens gives stop-motion life to Royal Robertson’s deranged sci-fi art. Owners of “Adz” will recognize much of the paranoid schizophrenic’s strange work from the liner art that accompanied the album.

The video definitely illustrates Stevens’ odd fixation with Robertson, leaving us to wonder how it will affect the future of the baroque indie composer’s work. —Matt Carney
