Timber Timbre - Hot Dreams

I overlooked this band when the album first came out despite great reviews just because their name is so stupid. I gave in and listened a month later and loved the album but didn't give it a second listen until just now. Somehow, it managed to grow on me.

If you like Nick Cave menace and/or Ennio Morricone, boy do I have the band for you!

This band is great and yes, they have been unfairly overlooked. I am only aware of their existence because of good old Anthony Fantano.

I was amazed that Fantano and I actually agreed on an album that wasn't punk or hip hop. It's increasingly uncommon.

They have something of a Fat Elvis thing going on. Like Having Fun with Elvis on Stage set to seedy music.

Especially Run from Me. It sounds like a serial killer covering Love Me Tender.

I don't think you truly appreciate how much I appreciate Fat Elvis.

So, I listened to two of the posted songs and while I can tell this isn't really for me, I can see myself listening to the album anyways and objectively enjoying it.

Am I reading this the wrong way, or is "Bring Me Simple Men" some kind of gay dirge/anthem hybrid?

I think you're reading too much into it. Reads like a heartland rock song, albeit with some unusual imagery.

Plenty of room on the bandwagon.
