Timber Timbre with Boyhood | St. Catharines
November 15, 2017 | 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Timber Timbre make songs that sound like late-night echoes from swampy woods. The kind of music you’d expect to hear in a David Lynch movie. Timber Timbre are set to perform a haunting set of cinematic folk and art-rock in the acoustically-pristine Partridge Hall.
Their fourth record – Sincerely, Future Pollution – was written at home in Montreal and recorded in a studio outside Paris with bandmates Taylor Kirk, Simon Trottier, Mathieu Charbonneau and Olivier Fairfield. Sincerely, Future Pollution is an agitated document for surreal times.
If each Timber Timbre record is framed in genre play, on Sincerely, Future Pollution, the components are the most askew: the glam of Roxy Music; the plaintive pop of Talk Talk; the disquiet of Suicide; the invincibility of Talking Heads; the haunting This Mortal Coil. All (and more) unlikely references are present, tethering Timber Timbre’s experimentation to points of familiarity. The range is an acute angle from New Age to Popular French Disco Revival like Daft Punk and Air, filtered through Timber Timbre’s painterly imagination.
Boyhood is the project of Belleville born, multi instrumentalist, Caylie Runciman. Her recently completed sophomore record, Bad Mantras (set for release in 2018), is the product of a few heavy years, filled with rhythmic, melodic, repetitive, mantra-like vocals.
