Timber

Sunday, 27 August 2017 - 2:30pm
Birmingham duo consisting of Janet Simpson-Templin and Will Stewart. Timber’s self-titled EP is a study in gorgeous economy. Each of these five tracks feels like a frozen moment — its protagonists on the cusp of either liberating revelations or freezing paranoia...maybe both. The lush instrumentation travels splendidly though each song, luxuriating in the open spaces while providing a counterpoint to the dramatic tension coiled within the lyrics. The listener never learns too much, but it’s enough to want to hear the brief program on repeat — an urge that pays in dividends.
