SISYPHUS : TRIPLE S PICK N’ MIX

Not to be confused with the King of Ephyra, boulder rolling deceiver of Greek Mythology, Sisyphus are an alternative trio made up of Sufjan Stevens, Son Lux, and Serengeti. Unlikely for some, maybe, but out of these three very different artists, has evolved a perfect blend of genres in this self titled album, Sisyphus, which was released back in March. Whilst all three gents each have completely different stylistic approaches, Lott, Stevens and Cohn, combine their influences into what Sufjan himself calls a “wellspring of mad ideas”. Creating an album that throws up a pick and mix of tracks, using Stevens’ smooth vocals, a sprinkle of Son Lux-esque beats and Serengeti’s distinctive spoken word.
