iTunes Editors’ Notes

If you ever wondered what it might sound like if a whimsical indie rocker got together with an adventurous experimental composer and an iconoclastic rapper, Sisyphus will satisfy your curiosity. Featuring Sufjan Stevens, Son Lux, and Serengeti, this project is nominally hip-hop, its nervous boom-bap beats and kinetic rapping flanked by a wily array of synths, strings, and electronic textures. Album opener "Calm It Down" sounds like jilted '90s rap—that is until it melts into atmospheric shoegaze in its second half, with Stevens borrowing the mic to sing the song to sleep. There are moments of captivating beauty here ("I Won't Be Afraid"), mixed in with moments of quizzical experimentation ("Booty Call"). "Alcohol," with its enticing Nine Inch Nails electro-march vibe, is a standout. Sisyphus is a dizzying, engrossing listen. You'd expect nothing less from this trio.

Customer Reviews

Could be 2014s best hip hop album!

With Serengeti’s rhymes and thought provoking wordplay, Sufjan’s entrancing harmonies and clever lyrics, and Son Lux’s back breaking beats and rhythms, this album is looking to be one of the most interesting and magical musical collaborations of 2014.

Heres a word to the naysayers against Sufjan and his music. GET OVER YOURSELF! Sufjan Stevens is an artist, and as such he isn’t scared to branch out into different genres and facets of music. if you actually know the dudes musical history you’ll know his first album was influenced by layers upon layers of electronic sounds and melodies, his second album was an instrumental electronic album. just because he started writing acoustic songwriter type stuff for a bit doesn’t mean thats him.

so don’t say he’s changed or forgotten himself or whatever bull**** you may want to say.

Great album, gonna be my jam all summer i already know it.

God bless Sufjan, Serengeti & Sun Lux.

Yep

I’m all jiggy at the first spin. Yes, it’s doing it for me. I dig the vibe. Lyrics punch me in the gut. Kind of. Okay, now I am spinning. This was not what I was expecting. Even after listening to the samples. It is better.

I'm happy that Booty Call rings out in less than 2:30. I listen to it all the time. Sometimes more.

A definite forward move for all: the band, music, society.

Invent and reinvent!

Fun collaboration that infuses hip-hop into the experimental sonic territory of the AGE OF ADZ. Always happy for new Sufjan!
