no matter what you want you will feel the illinoise or we will punch you in the mouth!

Nightlife in Illinoise: A free EP mashing up Sufjan Stevens's classic indie-folk concept album Feel the Illinoise! with New York hip-hop duo Metermaids's debut album Nightlife. Sounds like the most terrible idea ever, combining hardcore beats with gentle riffs, but surprisingly, it works. Recontextualizes the music in ways you wouldn't expect (which is exactly the point of a good mashup).

The song titles are true to the source material in that they run on forever. I imagine Sufjan would be amused.
