The Skinny: In just one week, The Lees Of Memory will release their debut album, Sisyphus Says. Formed by longtime friends and band mates John Davis and Brandon Fisher (formerly of Superdrag), The Lees Of Memory is the kind of happenstance project that is born solely of the individual members fusing their creativity together at the exact right moment. Today, you can finally hear the full results of that fusion via YouTube – Sisyphus Says is streaming in its entirety below.
Produced by Grammy-winner Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Alice In Chains, Deftones), Sisyphus Says stands with the best of Davis and Fisher’s past work… and points the way to a very bright future. Sometimes blanketed in a dense fog of swooning Jazzmasters and Jaguars, channeling Twin Peaks with ancient samplers powered by floppy disks, the songs on Sisyphus Says are pierced through with keening melodies and rich with harmonic colors. The lead single “We Are Siamese” is a sterling example.
