SONG OF THE WEEK #8: Timber Timbre - "Black Water"

Taylor Kirk, a contemporary Canadian singer-songwriter, specializes in dark, sparse, inventive folk music. Beautiful piano lines, thumping bass, poignant vocal melodies, slightly ominous atmosphere - in the world of derivative folkies Timber Timbre sounds unlike anyone else.

For me, Creep On Creepin' On is one of the most exciting records of 2011 so far. Three unnecessary instrumentals aside, I don't have a single gripe about this thing. And with songs like "Black Water" - it's hardly all that surprising..
