Timber Timbre

I picked the latest album from this group from another blog and loved what I heard. Admittedly, the use of "group" to describe Timber Timbre is liberal, as it is completely centered around the only consistent member, Talyor Kirk. In a strange way I feel I'm scooping this from our friend Warren inasmuch that like Warren it is a musician that grew up in Ontario and gravitated towards the wonderful city of Toronto. Then again he scooped the White Stripes and did a fantastic job at it. Anyhow, to the matter at hand, Timber Timbre produces some of the best folk music I've heard in quite some time, even blowing some of the more recent folk posts on this blog out of the water. While all three of the albums are worthy of some listens, the self-titled album is my favorite by far. Songs like "Demon Host" and "Magic Arrow" make up a regular part of my morning routine for the time being. Highly recommended to all fans of skillful crafted songwriting.

To be had here:

Cedar Shakes (2006) [192 kbps]

Timber Timbre (2009) [192 VBR kbps]


  1. I love you for Cedar Shakes, and this post in genereal.

    Timber Timbre should not be on the A&C label. This is not "indie pop for beginner" junk.

  2. He has a more throwback "loner" M. Ward sound to me, fantastic!

  3. love, love, love

    heard about your blog through a friend - Eduardo.

    thank you for this.

  4. Yeah, this guy is the bee's knees. Eduardo is okay too, I suppose.

  5. is "cedar shakes" self released? even discogs doesn't list it.

  6. it very well could be, but I can't track down info confirming nor denying that.
