"In 2005, this wildly creative singer/songwriter unleashed a 42-track tribute to the holiday spirit, Songs for Christmas. Since then, he’s given listeners a concept album that tipped its cap to Illinois and an emotional excavation set to synths, woodwinds, glitches, and horns (The Age of Adz). Now Stevens is back with Silver & Gold, a 58-track holiday-themed collection. (He's supporting it with a tour he’s calling Surfjohn Stevens Christmas Sing-a-Long: Seasonal Affective Disorder Yuletide Disaster Pageant on Ice.) “Christmas in a Room” is an arrestingly gorgeous tune that belies the tour’s cheeky name. Its intimate mix of tender, almost-whispered vocals and a sparse guitar melody spotlight the song's lyrics, which are about sidestepping the holiday hoopla and celebrating a loved one’s presence." -- iTunes Store
