about

OCT 2016, I am on tour in central Italy. Tomasso puts on a cassette while some late night drunken pasta is cooking on the stove. While I lay on the couch, floating in that post show liminal space between this day and the next, I am immediately and completely transfixed by the subdued sounds coming from the stereo, by its languid dirge processionals; part eulogy, part elegy betraying a vague longing to trade places with the departed. The next morning I ask to hear it again.

For weeks, I am humming the melodies in my head, in the van... even during my own performances. I ask around if anyone knows this band. Mark says he randomly played with them once in Croatia. Francesco says he just saw them in Prague and thought of me while watching them.

Eventually, I make contact with the elusive leader and we both agree it would be a nice idea to issue the cassette on LP... this album entitled "Phantoms of Place".

TIMBER RATTLE is a kind of "pyche-pastoral" hymnal which seems to be as informed by noise shows in west coast basements or the revolutionary spirit of poet Jean Genet as it is to the Southern Baptist churches of the Blue Ridge Mountains where its members grew up. It is spatially both vast and intimately spiritual, hoping to create a reflective space within to seek a solitary or individual experience with nature; with the mountains, the forests, the deserts, the oceans... the phantoms of place.

While never straying too far from a pastoral/folk sound that celebrates the primordial and arcane wild that surrounds them geographically, it is juxtaposed against a dicotomy of drone and psyche experimentation which focuses on an intuitive exploration of tone, pattern, scale, and palette.

Lyrically, the layers of harmonies present a willful abstraction on the relationships between land and bodies and life and death and magic and language and ritual and myth and space and cycles and animals and plants and food and poison... the sound and the shape of the words being equally important to any 'meaning' discerned from the lyrics.

"[Timber Rattle]'s most cohesive and essential release, 'Phantoms of Place' is an exploration of physical space, place and tradition, and an interpretation of life and death in the arcane wild."
