J.Tillman - Earthly Bodies
The argument over free mp3's online is a debate that I don't really want to get into, but I have to admit, without them there are 100's of artists that I would never have had my eyes, or should that be ears, opened to.
One of such artist's is J.Tillman. I downloaded this in 2009 and it fairly quickly became one of my tracks of the year (it features on the album 'Year in the Kingdom'). This multi-instrumental-singer-songwriter whispers intimately through his ballads in a way that Nick Drake fans should be keen to try. I quickly discovered that he'd previously released over 6 albums (plus 'Singing As' in 2010) but what I didn't realise was, J (Joshua) Tillman has been the Fleet Foxes drummer since 2008! Maybe the beard was a give-away, but where had I been?
"...beard for hire..."
Try more Tuesday Blues here....because Saturday is so far away!
