Sisyphus – Booty Call – new video

Sufjan Stevens goes hip-hip… yeah, that’s right. It sounds like a joke, and in a ‘tongue in cheek, arch eyebrowed’ way it (kind of) is.

Sisyphus is a collaboration between orchestral-indie-folk-auteur, Stevens, post-rock-alt-hip-hop-experimenter, Son Lux and Chicago rapper, Serengeti, and their debut eponymous album is as enjoyable as it is vaguely ridiculous.

Booty Call is the first tune off the album to get a video and if you find the idea of watching Sufjan Stevens dancing around in hip-hop garb as a bunch of hot chicks canoodle with each other odd, then you’ll be pleased to find out that it is. There’s also a vague air of Flight Of The Conchords to proceedings (and a faint whiff of cLOUDDEAD too). Check out the video below:

Sisyphus‘s debut album is out now on Asthmatic Kitty.
