Timber Timbre 'Timber Timbre' LP
Singer-songwriter Taylor Kirk, known professionally as Timber Timbre, garnered attention is his native Canada by delivering a dark, mysterious combination of folk, blues, and indie rock that was often both contemporary and ancient-sounding. His self-titled album opens with the unadorned guitar-and-vocal Demon Host, but adds increasingly more complex, yet still spare, production elements as the record progresses. 'Until the Night' features tinkling autoharp, garage rock organ, and a languid oriental melody, while 'Trouble Comes Knocking' is driven by sleazy strip-club saxophone and a throbbing bass drum beat. Throughout, Timber Timbre sounds like the soundtrack to some great lost '60s b-movie, at once colourfully original and creepily unsettling.
