Hot Dreams is the follow-up to the multi-Juno Award nominated and Polaris Music Prize shortlisted Creep On Creepin' On. The album features Taylor Kirk's most vividly cinematic music to date, adding arid western and viscous tonality to Timber Timbre's signature haunted folk. Hot Dreams coalesced throughout 2013 with long-time collaborator Simon Trottier stepping forward to join Kirk as co-composer / co-producer on this album. Culled from ideas born during a stint Kirk spent in Laurel Canyon, he and Trottier arranged the new songs at The Banff Centre in Banff, Alberta, later adding from the array of synthesizers at Calgary's National Music Centre. Engineered by Graham Lessard at the Banff Centre and Thee Mighty Hotel 2 Tango in Montreal, and mixed by Mark Lawson, Timber Timbre's third studio album for Full Time Hobby sees the return of collaborator Mika Posen on all string arrangements, with vintage contributions from Olivier Fairfield on drums and Mathieu Charbonneau on keys. Returning guest Colin Stetson lends atypically velvet saxophone, while the backing vocals of Romy Lightman (Tasseomancy, Austra) and words by Simone Schmidt (Fiver, One Hundred Dollars) round out the guest appearances on Hot Dreams.
