On "Hot Dreams", the title single off Timber Timbre's third studio album for Arts & Crafts, Taylor Kirk and collaborator Simon Trottier daub vibrant colour across the restless evolution of the band's earthy, angular palette. Seductive guitars drape over languid synthesizers, animating an otherwise reticent Kirk singing in his singular low intonation. The consonance of Mika Posen's strings mingle with vintage contributions from Olivier Fairfield on drums and Mathieu Charbonneau on keys. Guest Colin Stetson envelops the backing vocals of Romy Lightman (Tasseomancy, Austra) in timeless cycles of velvet saxophone. The breathtaking video produced by Scott Cudmore and Michael LeBlanc clearly defines the new space of Hot Dreams' Timber Timbre, slathered in viscous tonality: a new sonic admission, ringing sensuality and caprice, neon and haze. Hot Dreams is Timber Timbre's most fully realized work in a sinuous and infinitely rewarding catalogue of vivid imagistic music.
"Hot Dreams" will be released April 1, 2014 on Arts & Crafts.
