Editors’ Notes

One thing has remained constant for Tilly and the Wall: instead of a traditional drum kit playing the percussion role, member Jamie Pressnall tap dances the beat. If this is news to you, don’t run: give a sample listen and then try to resist Tilly’s charm. (It can’t be done.)  On their third full-length release, O, the band sounds more robust, more assured, and simply more rockin.’ While a generally cheery, exuberant vibe drives them (two guys, three gals), O is tempered with occasional doses of vinegar alongside the honey, and it all works beautifully. The stomping hoofwork of Pressnall (along with a whole chorus of foot-stompers) and the reverb-steeped vocals of Neely Jenkins and Kianna Alarid on “Pot Kettle Black” result in a track as full-bodied and driving as anything by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, while the layered atmospherics of “Chandelier Lake” is a clear nod to shoegazers everywhere. Guitarist Derek Pressnall’s lead vocal on “Alligator Skin” is a welcome complement to the sweet strains of Jenkins and Alarid’s harmonizing. Trumpets blare alongside angular guitars on “I Found You” and an uplifting, girl-group-meets-Lush aesthetic saturates the beautiful “Falling Without Knowing.”

Customer Reviews

Why don't more bands have this much fun?

Another really fun album - gets better the more you hear it. Alligator Skin is a cool track, as is Falling Without Knowing. Expands their sound in some ways. I've seen them live five times. They put on a great show and tickets are not expensive. Don't miss the chance to see them if they play a show near you!

Still the same great Tilly

Tilly and the Wall keeps it true to their roots. A little more polished then past albums. Great live !!! You can't deny watching them tap dance will make you want to get up and dance as well. Try falling without knowing.

Great album!

Seriously itunes? The only hateful thing about this album is your review of it. Great third album. Classic Tilly sound with an evident maturation and better production. Does suffer a bit for the near-total absence of Derek, but not enough to warrant such a scathing review.


Formed: 2001 in Omaha, NE

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Hailing from the musical hotbed of Omaha, Nebraska, the indie pop anomaly Tilly and the Wall formed in 2001 out of the ashes of several groups -- including Conor Oberst's pre-Bright Eyes endeavor, Park Avenue -- and gained some underground recognition for their unorthodox approach to percussion, forsaking the traditional drum kit for the amplified tap shoes of dancer Jamie Williams (as well as hand percussion supplied by vocalists Neely Jenkins and Kianna Alarid).
