Of the many descriptors that have been attached to Sufjan Stevens' music in the past, "repetitive" probably isn't one of them. Because he usually makes such intricate, shape-shifting music, this demo called "Take Me" (posted on Stevens' Tumblr this morning) comes as somewhat of a surprise.

In Stevens' own words, the five and a half minute-long song "goes nowhere," which is mostly true, despite his self-deprecating pessimism. Featuring mostly-unchanging synths, drums, and words ("Take me to your room, I want to be your friend" are the only lyrics), "Take Me" is a foray into minimalism from an artist whose last album was one of the most schizophrenic indie rock records of the last decade.

Check out "Give a Little Love," another demo that Stevens released earlier this year, and read what he had to say about "Take Me" below.

Sloppy lo-fi demo I found on an old hard drive. It don’t go nowhere so don’t expect nothing. Love don’t go nowhere so don’t expect nothing. Quadruple negative, yo. Stay Positive.
