Sufjan Steven's Sisyphus - "Alcohol"


Sisyphus is the name Sufjan Stevens, Son Lux and Serengeti have given to their band for its first full-length record, a self-titled one out in March, and "Alcohol" is our next taste (no pun intended), which you can sample now along with its "lyric video," which doesn't really include any lyrics. It's a surprisingly mesmerizing video anyway, featuring nearly six minutes of rapid-fire images of celebrities, famous moments, movie stills, and wasted cartoon characters, which is appropriate because it's an absolutely mesmerizing song, with Serengeti's singular vocals leading the way over a prowling backbeat. Check it out - Sisyphus is out March 18.
