J. Tillman - Year In The Kingdom LP

So who cares that almost no one had heard of J. Tillman before, let alone that he had already released 5 albums before Fleet Foxes suddenly exploded? I don't. Apparently Tillman only joined the Floot Fexes when they had already recorded and released the "Sun Giant" EP, but honestly, when hearing him sing alone, you'd swear he was with them from the start. So, this fifth record and my first introduction to the man reminds me of ... Fleet Foxes! Who would have thunk! Seriously, the vocal harmonies and such definitely remind of FF, but there's also some Great Lake Swimmers in here and some decent singer-songwriter stuff such as Rocky Votolato.

"Year In The Kingdom" will not let you down, so get it from Insound
