Earlier this year, Siskiyou were approached to take part in a project initiated by the Groninger Museum in Groningen, NL. Several musicians were asked to create music that would accompany individual paintings on an audio tour of the museum’s upcoming exhibition on the Group of Seven.
We’re sorry to say the project has since dissolved, though not before the stark, haunting “Always Awake”, composed by Colin Huebert to accompany Tom Thomson’s “Burnt Country, Evening” (pictured below), was committed to tape. We’re thrilled to pass it along here.
MP3: “Always Awake”
Siskiyou’s Keep Away the Dead was released on October 4th. Get more info on the album, including streaming audio of the whole thing, on our release page, and check out the video for “Dead Right Now” here. In early November Siskiyou will head to Europe for a month of shows – check out those dates on our tours page.
