I like Timber Timbre's weird and creepy music, and I hear he puts on a great show!
With Hot Dreams (2014), Kirk and longtime collaborator Simon Trottier daub vibrant colour across the rest-less evolution of Timber Timbre’s earthy, angular palette. The elements – frontman Kirk’s singular intonation, quavered in slow, low register, over Trottier's stark orchestration – connect arid western to plodding horror with the pomp of Hollywood phantasm. Hot Dreams, Timber Timbre’s third studio album, 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.
