Chop Chop

The added benefit of my new job is that my coworkers are cool.  More importantly, they like good music.  Granted, there are now only 3 of us... but I'm still impressed.  The office is now somewhat of a statistical anomaly, since 2/3rds of the company is now Manitoban.  In addition to gushing over how awesome bands like Propaghandi, Weakerthans and Inward Eye are, the toban connection also throws a lot of good music back and forth.

A recommendation which came due to my Black Keys obsession was a local Toronto band called Timber Timber.  More soulful and folky than bluesful and rocky, TT was started as a project of Taylor Kirk and began to grow both in instrumentation, and in creepy awesomeness.  Kirk's songs don't so much flow towards your ear drums as they do slink through the air and creep up on your brain to softly lull you into a misguided state of comfort and trust.

It's kinda spooky... but really cool.
