Timber Timbre Hot Dreams
Hot Dreams is Timber Timbre at its most vivid cinematic vantage. The elements – Taylor Kirk's singular intonation, quavered in slow, low register, over co-composer/co-producer Simon Trottier's stark orchestration – connect arid western to plodding horror with the pomp of Hollywood phantasm. Hot Dreams, Timber Timbre's third studio album for Arts & Crafts, caches the hollow grey tones of Timber Timbre (2009), and the angular doo-wop haunt of Creep On Creepin' On (2011) in smoothed, viscous tonality: new sonic admissions, chiming sensuality and caprice, neon and haze, from the oftentimes reticent Kirk..
The Wooden Sky
The Wooden Sky
The title of The Wooden Sky’s fifth full-length album is an abridged quote from Frank Herbert’s 1965 sci-fi novel, Dune: “Survival is the ability to swim in strange water.” It’s a phrase that seems especially apt in 2017, as many of us are still reeling from the previous year. For Gavin Gardiner, the frontman of the Toronto-based indie rock band, the way to understand and reconcile these unknowns — from oil pipelines and refugee crises to his own family’s personal history— is through songwriting. “It’s how I filter a lot of things that come in,” says Gardiner, as he walks through the residential streets of Toronto’s Roncesvalles neighbourhood. “For better or for worse, it’s how I deal with things and how I communicate my feelings.” Swimming in Strange Waters is Gardiner trying to make sense of the world.
