FREE MP3: Timber Timbre “Black Water”
July 13th, 2011
Timber Timbre stop you. The elements are deceptively simple: a confident, but hushed voice, understated guitar, strings and keyboard flourishes, and a subtle percussive beat. Timber Timbre, led by guitarist/vocalist Taylor Kirk (above), is haunted by the history of pop music.
Timber Timbre have gained a devoted following with their spellbinding performances at unusual venues around Toronto and more recently supportingOwen Pallett across Canada and his first ever U.S. tour. The years have also marked a rapid progression from dusty, low-fi bedroom blues to the more complex, cinematic studio work, and the formation of the band as a true three-piece, with Kirk joined by Mika Posen on violin and Simon Trottier on lapsteel, autoharp and synth.
New album ‘Creep On Creepin’ On‘ -released by us via the legends at Full Time Hobby is the sonic result of this progression. It’s an album of sophisticated beauty that has already been shortlisted for the 2011 Polaris Music Prize. Below is the track “Black Water”, for streaming and download. Enjoy.
