Last summer, I caught the tail end of Timber Timbre's set at the Olympic Island Festival in Toronto (there to see Broken Social Scene and Pavement). This was my first exposure to this Canadian three-piece, and I ended up walking away feeling rather indifferent. For me, the slow paced spooky crooning of lead singer Mika Posen didn't really fit the hot summery day.
Today, I finally gave Timber Timbre's recent album Creep On Creppin On a complete spin during a long drive in the rain. This time around their brand of eerie blues made much more sense to me. Maybe it had to do with the overcast skies and heavy downpour. In the stand-out track Black Water, Posen sings "All I need is some sunshine". Check it out below:
