TIMBER TIMBRE 'Creep On Creepin' On'
In the follow-up to 2009’s self-titled release, multi-instrumentalists Taylor Kirk, Mika Posen and Simon Trottier come together again on heartrending compositions that engage, transport and challenge. 'Creep On Creepin' On' moves forward from the band’s Polaris Music Prize long-listed TIMBER TIMBRE, towards the realization of its ability to simultaneously invoke and disguise the most essential elements of pop and rock music with chilling authenticity. From guttural groans on lead track “Bad Ritual” to the eerie doo-wop-inspired pleas of “Lonesome Hunter”, the album is textured and commanding, stirring proof of the unwavering powers of obsession and possession. The album also includes appearances by acclaimed pianist Mathieu Charbonneau and saxophonist Colin Stetson, both of whom Kirk credits with elevating the caliber of the album’s arrangements as well as its overall sound. And while settings and collaborators continue to change for the band, the guiding inspiration behind the songs has not. The result is TIMBER TIMBRE’s most brilliant and robust record to date, a collection of 10 tracks that expands to incorporate rich and varied melodies, affecting lyricism and evocative vintage instrumentation. With 'Creep On Creepin’ On', TIMBER TIMBRE has succeeded in reaching a place it was long destined for, where its music is as powerful and extraordinary as it has always been unmistakable.
