This is a great and unique album.
R. Raitz
Released in 2009, it's both beautiful and disturbing, with lyrics and images that evokes a sense of disaster and personal ruin.
Hilton Royale
You must listen to this album; it is so different and hard to describe.

You must listen to this album; it is so different and hard to describe. The slow bluesy pace is almost visceral and sensual with longing. The eerie melodies, mostly guitar enhanced with organ, piano, percussion and strings, can sometimes give me goosebumps, yet they remain disarmingly simple, almost a primitive folk. I find myself singing along with Taylor Kirk's hauntingly beautiful songs and strange, paradoxical lyrics:
"dreamin' every night of you, shakin' at the sight of you... And you dug me out of this shallow grave,
with your Swiss Army knife, And only you could revive me..."

Personal favorites include "Lay Down in the Tall Grass" and "I Get Low"

You won't be able to get this album out of your head.
In its own alternative world. Strange and beautiful.

Timber Timbre's self-titled effort is no mean feat. There are many indie music landscapes being mined for concepts today, but there aren't many artists interested in the sounds of the deep bayou. Listening to this album, one need only close their eyes to find themselves transported to the delta south, in the middle of a mangrove swamp, with the moon hanging full on the horizon and the sounds of insects as thick as the oppressive humidity.

This is an album that can require a certain mindset to get into, certainly an open mind, but it is a rewardingly unique listening experience. The themes of spirits, religion, and death hang heavily over the languid, organ-driven tracks, which never gather any kind of speed, though "We'll Find Out" rises up from the muck into a nigh-spiritual chorus of voices. "Lay Down in the Tall Grass" could've been the dark, brooding theme to "True Blood", and "I Get Low" sounds like the blues as sung by the most dejected person on the earth, lead singer Taylor Kirk crooning, "I get low, low, low, low/On my own."

What's most impressive about this eponymous album is the way band manages to formulate their sound, a muted swamp-blues and folk fusion. A lonely organ dialsup the creep factor, Kirk's plaintive, ghostly vocals appearing out of the mist, the subdued strum of a guitar drifting in from nowhere. This album marries the hot and sticky with the cold and clammy, and all throughout, Kirk drives the album forward with the delivery of an alligator drifting in the water, definitely moving forawrd, not in any apparent hurry. The end result is an album that is both surprisingly charming and a little creepy, like a ghost story that isn't real but gives you shivers just the same.

This is a great and unique album. You can either take your time to listen to the songs and the lyrics, or let it float by as catchy back ground tunes. I love the unique quality of his voice, especially when too many indie artists sound the same (at least to me.)

Sounds great on vinyl. Very well recorded and pressed. Not like some of those lower quality vinyl reproductions out there *cough* anything back to black *cough*

I heard the song Magic Arrow on an episode of Breaking Bad, and I downloaded the album off of Amazon that day.

At first it struck me as being influenced by the early NYC Punk/No Wave stuff, like Suicide, which I'm a big fan of.

The rest of the album strikes me as more of a dark folk sort of thing though, a bit like maybe Castanets or Jana Hunter.

It's an interesting listen.
