The most eagerly-awaited Canadian album to be released this week was undoubtedly Hot Dreams, the fifth outing by internationally-acclaimed Toronto band Timber Timbre. It lived up to all those high expectations, and the rave reviews are flooding in. A brand new video for one of its tracks, "Beat The Drum Slowly", premiered via TIME, proof of the band's buzz-worthiness. It's the lead track on the album, and it features vibrant and stunning animation from another hero of the Canadian indie scene, the multi-talented Chad VanGaalen. His work in the clip has elements of psychedelia and surrealism, and it is eye-catching and evocative with a disturbing undercurrent (the press release from label Arts & Crafts terms the video "quietly disquieting"). The song itself showcases the majestic melancholy that is the hallmark of the TT sound.
