Timber Timbre

Add Date: April 5

Artist: Timber Timbre

Album: Creep On Creepin' On

Label: Arts & Crafts

Genre: Blues, folk, alternative

Comments: The Canadian trio Timber Timbre breaks from their fuller folksy past and transitions to a darker vibe for their fourth album, Creep On Creepin' On. Here, the band sounds just like the album title. The music embraces the swampland of the South in a sound both haunting and enticing, made creepy by the everlasting duo of high-pitched piano keys underlying the majority of the tracks. On first listen, the album will either be truly scary or comedic, but it can be fully appreciated with an open mind and an affinity for Tom Waits.
