(Pronounced "Timber Tamber," by the way.)

Dark neo-'50s-high-school dance band, done by cool, mopey ghosts drunk on Nyquil. Spooky, doo-woppy, teen-ballad-y, loungey, really quite fantastic.

RIYL: Chris Isaak? (it's better), David Lynch (it's correctly spooky), Danny & The Juniors (played at half-speed)

1. (3:07) Slow, plunking piano, groaning back-up vox. Spooky, lethargic lounge singer.
2. (1:53) Suspenseful strings, horror movie creaking and effects. Mood buffer, not a proper song.
3. (3:59) ** [MARGINAL FCC: "Dickless," "Cock-blocked"] Beautiful '50s strings. Doo-woppy Penguinish singer, imagine the gymnasium dance in "Back to the Future", but all smeared out and indie-fied. Beautifully inept sax solo.
4. (5:59) *** Even croonier. Lugubrious lounge vox under cool, half-assed brass, and cooler lounge piano, with a slow doo-wop chorus, with occasional stabs from reverby guitars. Long and samey, but so copacetic that it works.
5. (3:01) Bleary windchimes, spooky tympani or something. Horror movie violins. Another noodly mood-piece instrumental. Pretty and foresty.
6. (3:51) **** Beautiful-awful sax intro, spacey organ and plucked guitar... staccato doo-woppy lounge vox over plunked piano and spacey f/x. Great melodic hooks. This is the world's most comatose sock-hop band ever. It plods on, inevitably and spookily and nostalgically. Twiddling violins and more spacey f/x.
7. (4:51) *** Energetic stomping, faintly howling intro. Dark lonely mountaintop-garagey vocals. With hep-cat-1960s Henry Mancini keyboard. Distilled fun & cool. Chorus a bit dippy, but it's joined by a faint girl-group backup.
8. (4:43) * More plunking '50s piano, teen-ballad crooner (with Carson McCullers lyrics?). Fuzzed-out textures everywhere.
9. (4:31) ** '50s walking blues pop, nice thwomping beat, creepy sax echoes in back. Harpsichord chorus. Ends in an extended haunted house saxophone nightmare.
10. (3:33) Drone for two minutes, and then some spooky piano chords. And... it's over.
