Creep On Creepin’ On, Timber Timbre’s last album, was an introduction to the Canadians’ spooky, seductive, weatherworn songs. Their fifth album is cut from similar cloth, a record where vocalist Taylor Kirk and bandmates deal from a deck of atmospheric folk, dark blues and elemental rock. It’s music from the shadows, but the songs here are sturdy, robust and striking, helped by Kirk’s flick-knife croon and the band’s fine ability to provide the music with dark stripes. From the magnificently indecent rub and rush of the title track and the vengeful spirit exhibited on This Low Commotion to the bite and snap on The New Tomorrow, Timber Timbre’s menacing undercurrent of noir, sleaze and intrigue keeps you engaged and very much on your toes. You’ll be thinking about these songs and those characters long after they slip back into the shadows. timbertimbre.com
