Timber Timbre's self-titled debut album cemented the status of the outfit, led by Taylor Kirk, as Canada's creepiest indie folksters when it was released in 2009. Kirk seems well aware of that standing, which might explain why Timber Timbre's sophomore album is called Creep On Creepin' On.
The 10-track album is out April 5 through Arts & Crafts. Kirk wrote it in Sackville, N.B. last June, and Kirk and his band produced and recorded it with Kees Dekker at Montreal's The Treatment Room. Grammy nominated audio engineer Mark Lawson helped with the recording.
"The idea is to make music we love and therefore embrace the risk of sounding like all the music we've ever loved, all at once," Kirk says.
