After waiting four long years since the last Siskiyou album, we’re pleased to celebrate the official release of Not Somewhere. Bandleader Colin Huebert’s subtly gorgeous songwriting traverses between existential dread and cautious hope, balancing vulnerable lyrics with delicate – and often joyful – instrumentation.

Praise for Not Somewhere:


“‘Everything ain’t going the way I planned,’ Colin Huebert sings on the opening track to his fourth Siskiyou album, Not Somewhere. Like its title indicates, this is a record that is rooted in its nowhere-ness. Folk-y one moment, cacophonous the next, Not Somewhere is warm, haunting and impossible to absorb in just one listen. It speaks to the frustration, helplessness and rage that accompany the dissolution of certain dreams; displacement and other capitalist horrors; mental health and the lies we tell ourselves; and all the unplanned endings and reluctant new beginnings we undertake because we have to, because that’s what living is. It’s also darkly funny. The vocals are loosely and lushly layered, pillows full of feathers coming apart at the seams. Horns flare up and fall away, acoustic guitars like open hearts and sunrises, a gentle brush of drums, cello and woodwinds that alternate between a whisper and a scream. It’s not easy to be a person right now, and Huebert captures that beautifully.”

“Siskiyou’s latest album gets under your skin. Not Somewhere is bold and weird and deeply human, uneasy listening at its finest.”
PopMatters
 
Not Somewhere’s half-hour course makes a fitting companion for what ails us… If naming your fears is the first step in an effort to conquering them, Not Somewhere towers in triumph for that alone.”
