‘Earthly Bodies’ by J. Tillman

J. Tillman

While I was in Utah last week I had a late night of deck presentation making, and to aid me, I was listening to a lot of folk albums. And by folk I mean some of the newer stuff inspired by folk music, people like Bill Callahan, Jana Hunter, Devendra Banhart and J. Tillman. Since then I’ve been listening to J. Tillman quite a lot, really digging into his older albums (though I still haven’t heard Father John Misty, whoops). In particular is this track Earthly Bodies from his album Year in the Kingdom which has really caught my ear. There’s a nice build up to the track which is nicely executed. I love the subtle, beautiful approach he brings to his songs. It’s all very quiet and sentimental. If you enjoy this track I’d suggest checking out Year in the Kingdom in it’s entirety, it’s a good place to start.
