Timber Timbre is a Canadian folk music project, featuring Mika Posen, Simon Trottier and Taylor Kirk. The moniker refers to an early series of recordings made in a timber-framed cabin set in the wooded outskirts of Bobcaygeon, Ontario.
A&C088 – Hot Dreams
Release Date: April 1, 2014
Hot Dreams, Taylor Kirk’s third full length for Arts & Crafts, is Timber Timbre from its most vivid cinematic vantage. Kirk and collaborator Simon Trottier daub vibrant colour across the band’s ever-evolving palette, connecting arid western to plodding horror with the pomp of Hollywood phantasm.
Hot Dreams caches the hollow grey tones of Timber Timbre (2009), and the angular doo-wop haunt of Polaris Music Prize Short Listed Creep On Creepin’ On (2011) in smoothed, viscous tonality: new sonic admissions, chiming sensuality and caprice, neon and haze.
