Album Review

With Hot Dreams, Timber Timbre already delivered one excellent album in 2014 that could have been a soundtrack; as Last Ex, the band's Simon Trottier and Olivier Fairfield deliver an even more filmic collection with their self-titled debut. The duo expanded Timber Timbre's scrapped score to the horror film Last Exorcism II — but if it's fleshed out, it's also decaying: Last Ex delivers an elegant, witty creepfest full of warm, murky sounds with a beautiful sickliness to them. Fairfield and Trottier blend whimsy and dread as easily as they blend their influences. Sometimes the album sounds like a collaboration between John Carpenter and Silver Apples; elsewhere, it recalls Dirty Beaches' tattered glamour and David Lynch-ian jangle; hints of John Barry surface on the more romantic tracks; and the touches of pedal steel here and there recall Friends of Dean Martinez' similarly eerie Random Harvest. Impressively, the album's nods to kitsch and lounge don't detract from its unsettling quality; instead, the playful moments make the ones designed to make your stomach sink stand out even more. As gifted as Timber Timbre are at fashioning absorbing atmospheres, Last Ex allows Trottier and Fairfield (who are joined by their bandmates Taylor Kirk and Mika Posen on several songs) to toy with their listeners' moods even more cleverly on these haunted vignettes and more substantial experiments in terror. Spooky, playful, and even somewhat poignant, Last Ex will delight anyone who loves the more flamboyant side of instrumental and film music as well as Timber Timbre fans.
