Canadian music group Timber Timbre will perform in Guangzhou as part of their China tour. Frontman Taylor Kirk has a powerful, arresting-veering-on-creepy presence on stage, with theatrical gestures counterbalanced with restrained, deep and smooth vocals to create their signature raggedy, swampy blues sound that seems to ascend from an alternate universe. The band, which has been labeled anything from “southern gothic” to “psychedelic freak folk” has been together for almost 20 years, growing a relatively underground, but loyal and increasingly international following over the years, along with a slew of prestigious independent awards. Check out their live performance at T:union on May 10.
