Timber Timbre returns with Creep On Creepin’ On. The follow-up to 2000’s self-titled release, multi instrumentalists Taylor Kirk, Mika Posen and Simon Trottier come together again on heartrending compositions that engage, transport and challenge.
Creep On Creepin’ On moves forward from the band’s Polaris Music Prize long listed Timber Timbre, towards the realization of its ability to simultaneously invoke and disguise the most essential elements of pop and rock music with chilling authenticity.
From guttural groans on lead track “Bad Ritual” to the eerie doo-wop-inspired pleas of “Lonesome Hunter”, the album is textured and commanding, stirring proof of the unwavering powers of obsession and possession.
Kirk began the writing of the record two years previous with tracks further assembled during a residency in Sackville, New Brunswick in June of 2010. Creep On Creepin’ On was produced by Timber Timbre and engineered by Kees Dekker at The Treatment Room and inside a converted church studio with Grammy nominee Mark Lawson. The album also includes appearances by acclaimed pianist Mathieu Charbonneau and saxophonist Colin Stetson, both of whom Kirk credits with elevating the caliber of the albumís arrangements as well as its overall sound. And while settings and collaborators continue to change for the band, the guiding inspiration behind the songs has not. ìThe idea is to make music we love and therefore embrace the risk of sounding like all the music weíve ever loved, all at once,î Kirk explains. The result is Timber Timbreís most brilliant and robust record to date, a collection of 10 tracks that expands to incorporate rich and varied melodies, affecting lyricism and evocative vintage instrumentation. With Creep On Creepiní On, Timber Timbre has succeeded in reaching a place it was long destined for, where its music is as powerful and extraordinary as it has always been unmistakable.
