Xylouris White - The Sisypheans


  • £21.99

Xylouris White's fourth installment of progressive Cretan lute compositions present the sounds of the lute, George Xylouris' vocals and Jim White's (Dirty Three) drums in an open, spacious sound-field, produced by Guy Picciotto (Fugazi, Rites Of Spring). 

With the philosophical bent that suits their music's ancient headwaters, Jim and George are meditating on the life of a travelling musician, Sisyphyan in its repetition, but inspired in an eternal recurrence of themes and techniques that allow them to climb ever-further into their experience as players.
