Timber Timbre’s self titled album was criminally overlooked by myself when compiling my top 20 albums of 2009. I don’t know how this happened as it’s a beautiful album and I’ve recently fallen back in love with it thanks to this session.
The Canadian outfit, with Kirk Taylor at the helm, produce a haunting bluesy folk sound that is unlike anything else I’ve heard. It’s not something I feel I can listen to over and over again but in some ways this makes me enjoy the album even more as when I do get back round to listening to the album it still feels fresh.
The session here contains four tracks which are all of their most recent album; their first to get a full commercial release. For me, these may be some of the stronger tracks off the album and they sound better here than on record so this is definitely a session to check out.
The tracks included in the session are;
1) Magic Arrow – album track
2) Trouble Comes Knocking – album track
3) No Bold Villian – album track
4) Demon Host – album track
