New Music – Sisyphus – Calm it down


Who the hell are Sisyphus, I hear you scream? Well, it’s Sufjan and a couple of others. That’s enough for me anyway, check out the blurb and videos below.

Update: I’m not sure about ‘Calm it down’ but ‘Alcohol’ is dazzling!

Sisyphus is the new name for the collaboration between Serengeti, Son Lux, and Sufjan Stevens (formally s/s/s). Their new project under this moniker is a self-titled album partly inspired by the art of Jim Hodges, and commissioned by the Walker Art Center and The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra’s Liquid Music series in Minneapolis/Saint Paul.

Liquid Music and the Walker Art Center presented a retrospective of Jim Hodge’s work alongside a listening party of the new album on the 14th February 2014, where fifty limited edition copies of the vinyl were available for purchase.

Asthmatic Kitty Records and Joyful Noise Recordings will release the record widely on 14th March 2014 in Ireland.
