Not only do Omaha, Nebraska 5-piece Tilly and the Wall feature a couple of former members of one of Conor Oberst’s early bands, they were also the first group signed to Bright Eyes’ Team Love label, and – get this – they have a tap dancer instead of a drummer! For real. Their latest release, Bottoms of Barrels, is their second studio album and was recorded with Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes, M Ward, Jenny Lewis and the Watson Twins). We like.
