Listening Post

The title track from Timber Timbre’s excellent ‘Sincerely, Future Pollution’ now has this disturbing animated video

The band are coming back to Europe with a new tour

We’ve said it before, but it’s worth repeating, Timber Timbre‘s ‘Sincerely, Future Pollution’ has been one of the slow-burning mainstays on our hi-fi stereo this last couple of months, an LP we regularly return to.

It’s a wallower – an atmospheric, enveloping album that makes the best company on cold grey days and dark nights. It makes sense to that it was recorded in a studio in a chateau outside Paris (La Frette). It’s out now, on City Slang.

Now, the Montreal band are sharing a new video for one its highlights, the title track, ‘Sincerely, Future Pollution’. The clip was directed, animated and produced by Joël Vaudreuil400;”>.

It’s a haunting, slightly disturbing piece of work…
