CURRENT: Sisyphus – “Calm It Down”

Sisyphus-cover-art-608x608

Well, it looks we already have our first contender for Song of 2014 with this new one from Sisyphus, “Calm It Down.” Okay, while I’m entirely kidding about already looking at 2014’s best songs when there’s still 2 solid weeks left in 2013, that shouldn’t take away from the brilliance of this collaboration from Sufjan Stevens, Son Lux, and Serengeti. The trio first collaborated as s/s/s, which Stevens now says “started to sound like the Nazi Schutzstaffel with a lisp.” So, name change. Obviously.

You can read more of Stevens’ thoughts on the making-of their debut self-titled LP in his interview at Asthmatic Kitty. Check out the simmering “Calm It Down” below.
