Timber Timbre, Tasseomancy
3939 N Mississippi Ave.
[SPOOKY INDIE] You thought summer was here? Not if Timber Timbre can help it. Latest release Hot Dreams finds the Canadian five-piece destroying all traces of sunshine and blue skies with its haunting take on indie-rock. The first track off of its fifth album is the aptly titled “Beat the Drum Slowly," a weird, dark march complete with a one-two snare, fluttering violin and nonsensical distortion that ascends to a stressful crescendo before dropping into nothing. Much of the album is like this—playing like a creepy, melancholy record spinning on an underwater gramophone. Trumpets wail, organ billows, electric guitar drones, and most everything is tinted with a shaky wobble held together only by Taylor Kirk’s solid baritone.
