News:: Tasseomancy = Ghost Bees + Timber Timbre

We don’t usually post news on herohill; we know the deal. You want the free music, not the commentary but honestly, when I heard that Sari and Romi were recording new music - under the new moniker Tasseomancy - with production and backing band support from Taylor Kirk and Timber Timbre I had to tell someone.

 

The combination of Ghost Bees and Timber Timbre is enough to make Rob Zombie or Wes Craven shudder in fear, but honestly the new textures and ambient sounds the girls are experimenting with are nothing short of breathtaking. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still dark and the girls’ falsetto voices still swirl around the tracks, but there is a distinct folky/blues stomp to the percussion that makes the songs more powerful and possessed than fractured and eerily fragile.

 

Granted, I’ve only heard two songs - both of which are available on the ole myspace for anyone interested or for purchase in 7″ format (note: one which features Taylor on vocals) - but Tasseomancy needed to augment their style to follow up their fantastic EP and with help from Taylor they have uncovered new emotions and textures that will - hopefully - make their upcoming full length a must hear.

 

While we wait, how about a video session from the girls, and one from Timber Timbre in playing in a Lighthouse in the Netherlands. Cool.

Saaay what?

This is great news (not necessarily the name change, but the new material avec Timber Timbre).

Herohill should have news more often.
