Biography

Timber Timbre is the brainchild of Taylor Kirk, the commanding persona at the fore of its spacious, weighted sound.

With Hot Dreams, Kirk and longtime collaborator Simon Trottier daub vibrant colour across the rest-less evolution of Timber Timbre’s earthy, angular palette.

The elements – Kirk’s singular intonation, quavered in slow, low register, over stark ... Read more in Amazon's Timber Timbre Store

Editorial Reviews

Vinyl LP pressing. 2009 release from Canadian singer/songwriter Taylor Kirk (AKA Timber Timbre). Kirk is another worldly soul, creating stirring, haunting songs that evoke imagery both dark and stunning and has earned a reputation as a spellbinding and dynamic performer. Over the course of two previous records (2006's Cedar Shakes and 2007's Medicinals), and spellbinding performances in support of Great Lake Swimmers and Ohbijou, Kirk has earned a devout following. Kirk describes his music as 'Gothic Rockabilly Blues' and Timber Timbre documents a rapid progression from dusty, lo-fi bedroom Blues to the more sophisticated, cinematic studio work that still possess the grainy, rustic feel epitomized as a sound all his own. Timber Timbre album was recorded in Kirk's home studio and the finishing touches were added at the Lincoln County Social Club with producer Chris Stringer (Ohbijou, The Coast, Rush). EMI.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazingly different August 6, 2010
Format:MP3 Music
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Indie-Styled Swamp Blues March 8, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Have Blues-y Indie Album December 8, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
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.)

4.0 out of 5 stars Reminded me of Suicide/Alan Vega at first October 8, 2013
By G. Rao
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
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.
