Boomkat Product Review:
These days it's increasingly difficult to get widespread attention simply by carving out a career as an trad singer-songwriter, but Timber Timbre's Taylor Kirk has made a stealthily quite magnificent contribution to the genre with this eponymous album. Opener 'Demon Host' is as simple and unadorned as these things come, relying on a little lo-fi echo and largely unconditioned strumming right up until a lovely choral coda. From here the album begins to blossom into a more intricately arranged affair, mimicking the kind of warm, vintage feel of Fleet Foxes and - perhaps more accurately - Devendra Banhart LPs, complete with old-fashioned instrumentation and studio effects. All of this comes together wonderfully well on 'We'll FInd Out', a slowed down ballad driven by female harmony vocals, weary violins and a quivering organ tone. Similar elements combine to evoke a kind of Tom Waits-tinted blues on 'I Get Low', while closing track 'No Bold Villain' manages to assert its power through a more slender presentation, exposing Kirk's voice in all its tremulous frailty.
