48 Other Sufjan Stevens CDs I Hope To Find Inside His Dumpster

If the supposedly unreleased <i>Stalker</i> is real, I hope these are too

On Wednesday (July 6), a Reddit user relayed a surprising message: He had found an apparently abandoned Sufjan Stevens CD titled Stalker in a dumpster in Brooklyn's DUMBO neighborhood. Based on the CD's insert, which bears the copyright note "© 1998 Asthmatic Kitty Records," the user -- later revealed to be Texas musician Marc Rebillet -- surmised that "as far as I know, I don't think it's ever been released."

Is this a hoax on Rebillet's part? Some kind of viral marketing ploy to sell more Sufjan tickets, as Asthmatic Kitty's John Beeler theorized on Reddit? Who can say?

One thing is certain, though: If we're to believe that this dumpster is really a treasure trove of "[h]undreds, maybe thousands of CDs ... Seven Swans, The Age of Adz, Christmas albums, track stems from his mixes, dozens of copies of each," as Rebillet told Stereogum in an interesting interview on Thursday, then there's a chance the 48 lost Sufjan albums we really want to hear are buried in there, too.
