Alameda maestro Stirling Myles has been keeping Blackout Bin posted during his band’s current western states tour with snippets of new songs, hellos and all kinds of whatnot. And while the songs he’s shared with us won’t be available to the public until the band’s new album is released, Stirling did send along a link to a great, intimate new video that he and his bandmates had filmed while on a stop in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
The song, “Portrait #1: To the Knives” is a slow-building, cello-infused dreamer, full of Stirling’s measured baritone, all filmed inside a church. It’s an excellent indicator of what’s to come for the group’s next LP, and kind of a haunted way to start your video-watching regimen for the day.
The band is back in the Northwest now finishing up the last leg of their tour. Check out the show section of their Facebook page for your next chance to absorb the group’s stringed-folk epics.
