cd in gatefold paperboard jacket. unlike the material on their eponymous debut on constellation, which was largely recorded in nomadic fashion while colin and erik toured as members of great lake swimmers, the mara, bc sessions found the pair settled, rooted and with keys in hand to the century-old mara community hall. most of the tunes on keep away the dead were born at mara hall, where bed tracks were laid down in the crisp air during depth of winter. the arctic atmosphere of that empty, cavernous, hardwood structure was the perfect complement to huebert's sensibility: a tense and acute restraint; a shivering, biting, sometimes bitter rending of bare bones, folk-inflected rock music.
