I first saw Tilly and the Wall some years ago at the Knitting Factory in New York. I had never been so immediately entranced by any band, nor had I ever seen so many feathers and balloons on a stage. They quickly became one of my favorites, but then one day, shortly after their Summer 2008 release O, they dropped off the face of the Earth. Whew, has it seriously been four years since we last heard from Tilly and the Wall? Yes, yes it has. So, needless to say, I actually yelped when I heard that Omaha’s own stomping, tapping, clapping babes have a new album called Heavy Mood, being released on Team Love on October 2nd. “But but but, that’s so long from now!” Well, good thing we have a couple of sweet new tracks to hold us over.
New songs, album tracklist, and tour dates after the jump!
