Record Label: Joyful Noise Recordings
Sisyphus is the new name for the collaboration between Serengeti, Son Lux and Sufjan Stevens (formally s/s/s), whose 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.
The 11-song set was recorded at Sufjan's office in Dumbo, Brooklyn and at Son Lux's in-law's house in Indianapolis, Indiana and features a cover designed in collaboration with the artist. Sisyphus will be issued on limited edition gatefold double vinyl by Asthmatic Kitty Records and Joyful Noise Recordings.
“Take the romantic strings and catchy choruses from the Illinois era, throw in some crazed electronic percussion, melted synths, rapped verses, and autotuned vocals, and stir.“ – Beats Per Minute
