mp3 premiere: new J. Tillman | "earthly bodies"

We've long been fans of J. Tillman's hauntingly stark and often mournful solo recordings -- even before Fleet Foxes drafted him as their secret weapon drummer/harmonizer/witty between-song banterer -- so it's pretty great to see his excellent discography getting some much-deserved increased attention as a result of his higher-profile day job. Tillman has a new full-length called Year in the Kingdom set to be released in September on Western Vinyl, and the first few songs to surface from the record have reminded me why I'm partial to his solo stuff. Here's an unmastered song from the new one, courtesy of the label:

j tillman :: earthly bodies

Listen to a couple more from the new album -- including the title track and the gorgeous "Though I Have Wronged You" -- here.

He's finally getting some much deserved attention. Saw him at SXSW this year at one of his 400 shows and he just held the entire room in the palm of his hand. Glad he's got new stuff coming out so soon.
