Timber Timbre

I came across Timber Timbre via Cool Hunting, so they must be, well, cool.  They’re also edgy, awkward, a bit hypnotic maybe and very difficult to pigeon-hole.  There’s a definite blues element in the small-town tales and relentless, recurrent plodding beats.  In the case of Trouble Comes Knocking, it’s a sort of macabre theatre, with regular writhes from what sounds like an accordion. Lay Down In The Tall Grass is much more minimal and slow-fi, and it’s tootling rattle wouldn’t be out of place on a Tim Burton soundtrack.  As for There Is A Cure, it has more of woozy, Southern Blues feel, and sounds like it was recorded in an echoey woodshed caked in history and voodoo and lord knows what else.
