Timber Timbre两个词发音相同，一个译为木质，一个译为音色。这也确实符合乐队的风格“木质音色”，乐队的主要成员就是Taylor Kirk一个人和一把木吉他（我找不到太多关于乐队的介绍，不过看过几段他的视频总是有个女人长伴左右，不知何人），自弹自唱着简单的歌谣，今年的这张同名专辑已经是他的第三张专辑（06年首张专辑Cedar Shakes和07年的Medicinals），去年夏天他便着手于这张专辑的录制。在Mika Posen(Forest City Lovers) 、Bruce Peninsula、Chris Stringer 等人的共同帮助下完成这张专辑， Taylor Kirk深受乡村、民谣、山地摇滚的影响，所以专辑也是一片复古情节，所以可能不大适合现在的年轻人听，喜欢怀旧的朋友不妨听听。(更多)
Timber Timbre stops you. The elements are deceptively simple: a confident, but hushed voice, understated guitar, strings and keyboard flourishes, and a subtle percussive beat. Timber Timbre front man Taylor Kirk is making pop as if it was meant to sound haunted.
Over the course of two records, 2006's Cedar Shakes and 2007's Medicinals, Timber Timbre has gained a devoted following. Spellbinding performances opening for noted Toronto musicians Bruce Peninsula and Ohbijou have earned Kirk more fans. The years have also marked a rapid progression from a dusty, low-fi bedroom blues to the sophisticated, cinematic studio work found on his newest self-titled record, set for release in January 2009 by Toronto based record label Out of this Spark.
Recording for the new album began in the summer of 2008 at Kirk's home studio and in the fall Timber Timbre put final touches on the record at the Lincoln County Social Club with producer Chris Stringer (The D'Urbervilles, Ohbijou, Rush, David Wilcox).
Despite Timber Timbre being the project of Kirk, the recording of this record was a community affair. Guests on the record include some luminaries of Toronto's pop underground. Mika Posen (Forest City Lovers) contributed string arrangements, as did the singers of Bruce Peninsula.
The sum of the parts, however, is something grounded in a strange place where genre descriptions like blues, country, and folk intersect becoming secondary to the precision of the moods being conjured.
