The Stuff of 2011: Timber Timbre's "Black Water"

Two years ago, Timber Timbre's self-titled record was hailed as one of the best Canadian releases of 2009. In 2011, Taylor Kirk and company did it again with Creep On Creepin' On: another album of dark and spooky indie folk that earned the band a spot on the Polaris Prize shortlist (not to mention our little red shortlist ballot, too).

The record's first single, "Black Water", is still very possibly our favourite song on the record, six haunting minutes of music that would be perfect winter listening even if the chorus didn't cry out, "All I need is some sunshine... All I need... All I need is some sunshine..."
