Timber Timbre, Marissa Nadler 

When: Wed., June 8, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $12-15
Timber Timbre's Taylor Kirk has one of those voices that cut through the 21st century's folk-rock clutter. He's striving for an old-school sort of romantic timbre (ho), but his instrument's a bit too inelegant to pull it off. Nevertheless, Kirk's earnest stiltedness and forthright gravity lend his band's stripped-down yet lush music a kind of wounded grace. Timber Timbre's new album, Creep on Creepin' On, takes things down weirder paths, trudging at odd angles and radiating a subdued drama. Something about this Canadian trio seems to be just slightly off, like a bar band you'd see playing in a David Lynch film. Boston's Marissa Nadler imbues folk music with sheer swathes of dream-pop production techniques. Fans of Mazzy Star and Mojave 3 should swoon to her stately, diaphanously beautiful songs. DAVE SEGAL
