Review | Timber Timbre - Creep On Creepin' On

Creep On Creepin On
Black Water

Timber Timbre’s 4th studio album ‘Creep On Creepin On’  was hinted at months ago in a creepy intro video that really left me wondering what on earth it was going to be.  Then when I heard first single ‘Black Water,’ I started to fill in the gaps in my head, the creepy intro video wasn’t just the beginning.

Ultimately I finally received ‘Creep On Creepin’ On’ which flat out wins as best album title of the year, I got to listening and I found myself eerily interested in hearing more and more of the album.  From the moment that the album starts with ‘Bad Ritual,’ you are nearly cinematically taken away into a dark macabre world.  I’ve tended to call their sound a ‘spaghetti western horror cabaret,’ and I think it’s really fitting.  It’s cinematic in nature, and could definitely be the soundtrack to a Guillermo Del Toro film.

The songs are strange, and yet totally listenable; the sound is rich and evocative and the melodies are vast and varying and they have a level of strangeness but are accessible strangely enough.  Its a totally fun album to listen to, it takes you to another place, and I highly recommend it.  These are ambling, reverb drenched bizarre songs that are a treat to listen to.
