Timber Timbre 

Timber Timbre (Out Of This Spark)

Timber Timbre is mostly a one-man business, operating like a dusty roadside stand in a Jim Jarmusch film. Taylor Kirk has a haunting voice as beautiful as Royal Wood's, touched with Slim Twig's rockabilly quirkiness. Each of the eight songs, kicking off with "Demon Host," is stark, controlled by Kirk's carefully enunciated words and a low-riding percussive beat that could also serve for hypnotism purposes. "Until the Night is Over" revives that house from New Orleans. Exceptional closer "No Bold Villain" rides off into the sunset on Mika Posen's (Forest City Lovers) string arrangements. An early favourite for best Canadian indie album of the year.
