Adrienne Kammerer is a fascinating Toronto paper and pencil artist creating drawings that explore subjects ranging in folklore, witchery, superstition and “glorifying the awkward”. I first discovered her work by noticing a newspaper print-out, a sort of zine, at various stores around Toronto that were available to buy for 1$. Since then her work has popped up on Timber Timbre T-shirts and on the gallery wall. 

Three Knocks is a group exhibition on now until Dec. 5th at Narwhal Projects featuring artists Katy Horan, Adrienne Kammerer and Jamiyla Lowe.

Timber Timbre announce April 1st release of Hot Dreams:

Timber Timbre and Arts & Crafts announce the April 1, 2014, release of Hot Dreams, the follow-up to the multi-JUNO Award nominated and Polaris Music Prize shortlisted Creep On Creepin’ On. The Scott Cudmore directed album trailer suggests Taylor Kirk’s most vividly cinematic music to date, adding arid western and viscous tonality to Timber Timbre’s signature haunted folk.

Hot Dreams coalesced throughout 2013 with long-time collaborator Simon Trottier stepping forward to join Kirk as co-composer/co-producer on this album. Culled from ideas born during a stint Kirk spent in Laurel Canyon, he and Trottier arranged the new songs at The Banff Centre in Banff, Alberta, later adding from the array of synthesizers at Calgary’s National Music Centre.

Engineered by Graham Lessard at the Banff Centre and Thee Mighty Hotel 2 Tango in Montreal, and mixed by Mark Lawson, Timber Timbre’s third studio album for Arts & Crafts sees return collaborators Mika Posen on all string arrangements, with vintage contributions from Olivier Fairfield on drums and Mathieu Charbonneau on keys. Returning guest Colin Stetson lends atypically velvet saxophone, while the backing vocals of Romy Lightman (Tasseomancy, Austra) and words by Simone Schmidt (Fiver, One Hundred Dollars) round out the guest appearances on Hot Dreams.

For the Hot Dreams album trailer Timber Timbre once again turns to Scott Cudmore, director of the band’s videos for “Demon Host” and “We’ll Find Out” from Timber Timbre (2009).


More details on Hot Dreams are coming soon.
