Meet THE LEES OF MEMORY! Debut album out 9/16!


Just a few weeks after we first announced the pressing of Superdrag’s quintessential headphone album Head Trip In Every Key on vinyl for the first time ever, now we bring you The Lees Of Memory! Formed by John Davis and Brandon Fisher 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. We will release the band’s debut LP Sisyphus Says on digital/vinyl September 16, with Burger Records releasing the cassette version the same day.Today, Stereogum is premiering the video for the first offering from the record, an atmospheric wall of sound entitled “We Are Siamese,” which you can watch here:

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. Elsewhere, thick slabs of guitar put down live on the tracking floor with Nick Slack’s drums are layered over with lush organs, synths, pianos, pedal steel, Taurus pedals, 12-strings, a whole kitchen sink of sound anchored by John Davis’ fuzzy electric bass–and topped with a veneer of breathy, heart-on-the-sleeve vocals drenched in reverb.@TheLeesOfMemory
