Jim White and George Xylouris have been friends since Jim’s early days in Dirty Three. Their
musical connection goes back to then and led them to start Xylouris White in 2013. Since then,
they have released three albums and been touring the world. The Sisypheans is their fourth
release.
Jim on The Sisypheans:
“As George Xylouris and I traveled around these last five years, we found
ourselves talking about Sisyphus. George had a theory about Sisyphus, con- demned to climb
that hill with that rock forever. George saw him carrying the rock in different ways, in his left
hand, behind his back, pushing it with his head while crawling and noticing each journey the
seasons changing, the grass and the insects. The meaning was clear and for George it fit with

playing the popular Cretan song “Proto Hanoti” many turns each day for his life and dis-
covering it new each time . . . I found it fit in with a long held set of thoughts I’d had, that if one

concentrated activity and thought enough on one thing it would expand and be a whole world. It
sounded like the same idea and also with the idea of first principles, for it to be new each time:
that is our job as musicians.
We would talk about this as we traveled playing music. One day a waitress heard us talking,
and she asked if we knew the Camus essay about Sisyphus. We didn’t, but I got it in English
and then we found it in Greek and it fit too. When we were playing in Louisville and working on
Black Peak, we stayed at a house and saw the artwork you see on the cover, by Elsa Hansen
Oldham . . .We’d finished the circular trilogy of Goats, Black Peak, and Mother and we found
ourselves making –. What we do leads us to who we are, the Sisypheans.”
