Timber Timbre // Hot Dreams (2014, Arts & Crafts) I won’t kid myself here. You’re not going to like this. Timber Timbre, is a music that’s as timeless as it is weightless, a bit like David Lynch covering the Tindersticks for one of his films. Sweaty, suffering and mysterious like a forbidden pleasure. Happy Monday! […]
