Rafter - Sex, Death, Cassette

Rafter, who's a part of Sufjan Stevens' Asthmatic Kitty family, has released a new album. Sex, Death, Cassette is the title, and it is quite an eclectic mix of songs. Considering this one is released by Asthmatic Kitty, I would expect nothing less than something that's eclectic. On the album, Rafter shows that he is a byproduct of a generation of artists that have learned to channel their A.D.D through creating good music. With too many musical influences to mention, his songs continually hit you by surprise, since you never know what to expect to hear next. The term "cookie-cutter" definitely does not apply to his music. To hear something fresh and new, look no further than Rafter's Sex, Death, Cassette.
