Not Somewhere

Siskiyou is essentially Colin Huebert who was once a member of Great Lake Swimmers. His latest album, Not Somewhere, has taken a while to put together. This was mainly due to him relocating across Canada from Vancouver to Toronto. He’d written and recorded skeletal versions of the songs in Vancouver. Once settled in Toronto he got together with cellist Rebecca Foon, Joseph Shabason and JP Carter (Destroyer) to add some magic dust. The music veers between The Velvet Underground, Elephant 6 collective and subdued folk. On Constellation.


Siskiyou use whispered lyrics, stacked acoustic guitars and stripped back minimal melody and drums to evoke a tightly-wound man haunted by something unknown. Inspired by lead singer Colin Huebert's year of illness and anxiety, the record captures the internal psychological terror and unease of his experiences. The deluxe 180g LP also contains Drebert’s 12 x 12 ink drawings inspired by the album.

Keep Away The Dead

Vancouver’s Siskiyou release their sophomore LP on Constellation. Keep Away The Dead is a collection of the sort of ramshackle indie-rock that has descended like a fog over the musical landscape these past couple of years. You know, that post-Funeral, post-‘Float On’ sound that's all thousand-yard guitars and vocals that are as much yelp as they are singing. If you’re into this sort of thing then Keep Away The Dead is a very good go at it. There’s even some accordion on here, which is nice.
