Last year, J Tillman broke my heart when I heard him play at the Horseshoe in an electrified spiritual performance, it felt as though the room stood still in silence to watch him in a Jesus like trance, he must’ve drew us all to tears. I will only put on J Tillman if I’m feeling introspective or sad, and in no other time. His music is ethereal, the kind of music that shakes your bones and wakes you up from a dullness that will grow if you don’t keep your heart in check.
J Tillman’s 7th Full-length (whew) Singing Axe was recorded in 3 days. I’m really looking forward to this one.
