Timber Timbre stops you. The elements are deceptively simple: a confident but hushed voice, understated guitar, harmonica, strings, looping pedals, organ flourishes, and a subtle percussive beat. All these sounds form a haunting resonance. Following Timber Timbre's self titled release in 2009, (hailed ‘Album of the Year’ in a nationwide critics' poll by Eye Weekly) and the now re-issued Cedar Shakes (2006) and Medicinals (2007), the band emerges with their newest, most refined record to date, Creep On Creepin' On .
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 short-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. Recently nominated for the Polaris Prize short list for 2011, Creep on Creepin' On affirms the band's natural and steady progression.
"The idea is to make music we love and therefore embrace the risk of sounding like all the music we've ever loved, all at once," Kirk explains. 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.
