J. Tillman from The Fleet Foxes is all set to give his solo album over to the world. His work, Vacilando Territory Blues, is slated for digital release on Nov. 4.
J. Tillman is lauded by fans for his ability to create emotional, tender blues in a way that doesn’t have him invoking self-pity. He takes the deep sadness that we’ve all felt at one point or another and weaves it into smooth, sonic chords. His songs distill a folksy, country flavor with rusty vocals. He does country in a way no one’s done it before, which is a great achievement, considering how much country music has been made over the years.
