vt-bluesJ Tillman released a new album last week entitled Vacilando Territory Blues. This album definitely demonstrates why Tillman is beginning to get buzz. It doesn’t hurt that Tillman is also the drummer for Fleet Foxes and was opening shows for them in Europe. Vacilando Territory Blues is a heartbreakingly beautiful piece of folk music. Building on Tillman’s previous releases, his newest effort is another gem. It sees Tillman evolving as a songwriter with tracks like ‘New Imperial Grand Blues.’ Beginning with a horn section before becoming a fuller more bluesy rock song. The new album definitely shows that Tillman can still write powerful haunting music but also that his voice and guitar don’t get swallowed up in a larger band setting.
