I knew this song would eventually find its way into the licensing world. Saw the ad the other night, but couldn’t seem to find the video until I saw Stereogum post it.

I guess Chrysler didn’t seem to mind tying together to a Toronto band with an expletive in their name, as you would have thought they would. Some Canadians really seem to hate it. I have no qualms. Besides, how else would you describe this band’s live show?

I kind of like the sound of wood.

Check out Toronto’s Timber Timbre, who will be re-releasing their self-titled full-length in Canada on June 30th through Arts & Crafts. Previously, Out Of This Spark (D’Urbervilles, Forest City Lovers) released the album. But it got great reactions from A&C‘s A&R after Bry Webb from the Constantines brought it to their attention. As well, Out of This Spark have also inked a deal with the mini-major for distribution.

Timber Timbre‘s music seems to haunt with an eerie feel, dark lo-fi bedroom blues with a calm voice at the helm. Take a spin with the song Lay Down In The Tall Grass, you can get it for free here.

Here’s the hypnotic video for We’ll Find Out.

As well, the band will be all across Canada from now until July (myspace). I’ll be looking to attend their show during NXNE, a two night Arts & Crafts fest at the Courthouse (featuring Apostle of Hustle, The Happiness Project, Years, Jason Collett, Still Life Still, Zeus, special guests and headliners, as well as a book launch for Stewart Berman‘s This Book Is Broken: A Broken Social Scene Story).

I was waiting for this news, wondering when Lebowski Fest would ever hit Toronto. It was rumoured, and I contacted the organizers to volunteer my support. But at that time, there was nothing set in stone. Now, it appears that The 8th Annual Lebowski Fest will be touring to Canada to put on events on Thursday, Sept. 17th and Friday, Sept. 18th. Achievers’ are regaled with two nights of events: live music and a screening of the movie on the first night, followed by an evening of bowling, replete with wild costumes, trivia contests, unlimited bowling, White Russians, and what-have-you.

Its my older brothers birthday on the friday. Now I have to convince him that this should be his birthday destination.

Ellie Goudling does ‘Wolves (Act I and II)’ by Bon Iver

Quite a departure from the synth-pop that we were expecting to hear from the UK’s Ellie Goudling. She does do justice to Justin Vernon’s emotional standout, from Bon Iver‘s critically-acclaimed For Emma, Long Ago. But where’s the chaos at the end? I guess I just need those drums to really get the idea that the songwriters’ world came crashing down from the words of a past love. Check out the track at Neon Gold Beat Company.
