Timber Timbre Reveals New Track, Curtains!?

Timber Timbre’s new song, Curtains!?, is now available for streaming. The track has been taken from Timber Timbre’s new album, Hot Dreams which is out March 31 via Full Time Hobby.

Frontman, Taylor Kirk explains: “Curtains!? is nearest to a rock song that the band have ever recorded up to date. When we were creating the bed tracks, I was thinking we were doing something in the world of German kraut rock band Can but Graham Lessard, our sound engineer, made the reference to Lalo Schifrin’s soundtrack for Dirty Harry. Simone Schmidt of Fiver composed the lyrics about a man’s fallen career and his double life exposed.’

Hot Dreams is the follow-up to 2012’s Polaris Music Prize short-listed Creep On Creepin’ On which was hailed for its “…black humour and spectral beauty” (The Guardian) and “possessed…a style all its own” (Pitchfork). The ten songs of Hot Dreams daub vibrant colour and new viscous tonality over Timber Timbre’s earthy, angular palette. The first vinyl pressing will be housed in a limited edition metallic jacket.

The band will perform at two different showcases this week at SXSW before embarking upon an extensive European tour in April.

Timber Timbre Release New Single, Hot Dreams

Hot Dreams, Timber Timbre’s fifth album and the follow-up to the multi- Juno Award nominated and Polaris Music Prize shortlisted Creep On Creepin’ On, is set for release on Monday 31 March 2014.

But to entertain their fans while they are waiting for this date to arrive, Timber Timbre have released their latest single, Hot Dreams, the title track from the new record. You can download the Hot Dreams single from iTunes now. You can also pre-order the album here.

Hot Dreams coalesced throughout 2013 with long-time collaborator Simon Trottier stepping forward to join Kirk as co-composer/co-producer on this album. Culled from ideas born during a stint Kirk spent in Laurel Canyon, he and Trottier arranged the new songs at The Banff Centre in Banff, Alberta, later adding from the array of synthesisers at Calgary’s National Music Centre.

Engineered by Graham Lessard at the Banff Centre and Thee Mighty Hotel 2 Tango in Montreal and mixed by Mark Lawson, Timber Timbre’s third studio album for Full Time Hobby sees the return of collaborator Mika Posen on all string arrangements with vintage contributions from Olivier Fairfield on drums and Mathieu Charbonneau on keys. Returning guest Colin Stetson (Bon Iver, Arcade Fire) lends atypically velvet saxophone while the backing vocals of Romy Lightman (Tasseomancy, Austra) and words by Simone Schmidt (Fiver, One Hundred Dollars) round out the guest appearances on Hot Dreams.

Timber Timbre return to Europe in April to play a number of shows. You can catch them live on the following dates:
April 3- Brussels, Botanique
April 4 – Paris, France, Fleche d’Or
April 5 – Amsterdam, People’s Palace
April 7 – Zurich, Switzerland,Rote Fabrik (Aktionshalle)
April 8 – Munich, Germany, Hansa 39
April 9 – Berlin, Germany, Lido
April 10 – Hamburg, Germany, Uebel & Gefährlich
April 12 – Stockholm, Sweden, Debaser Strand
April 13 – Copenhagen, Vega
April 15 – Nijmegen, NL, Doornroosje
April 16- London, UK, Scala
April 17 – Manchester, UK, Roadhouse

The Scott Cudmore directed album trailer suggests Taylor Kirk’s most vividly cinematic music to date, adding arid western and viscous tonality to Timber Timbre’s signature haunted folk.

Hot Dreams coalesced throughout 2013 with long-time collaborator Simon Trottier stepping forward to join Kirk as co-composer/co-producer on this album. Culled from ideas born during a stint Kirk spent in Laurel Canyon, he and Trottier arranged the new songs at The Banff Centre in Banff, Alberta, later adding from the array of synthesisers at Calgary’s National Music Centre.

For the Hot Dreams album trailer Timber Timbre once again turned to Scott Cudmore, director of the band’s videos for Demon Host and We’ll Find Out from Timber Timbre (2009).

Timber Timbre has released four critically acclaimed records since 2005, seen its music appear in Breaking Bad, on The Walking Dead Original Soundtrack and as the score to Foxfire: Confessions of a Girl Gang by Palme d’Or winning French director, Laurent Cantet. Timber Timbre has toured with the likes of Feist, Laura Marling, Lykke Li and Jonsi. The live four-piece heads back to Europe this week for appearances in Spain and Switzerland as well as a very special show at The Winter Camp Festival in Paris tonight at Le Trabendo.
