Singing Ax

RECORDING Steve Albini
MASTERING Bob Weston
 
     

J. Tillman's 7th full-length record is called Singing Ax and was recorded in three days, February 2010, by Steve Albini at Electrical Audio in Chicago. Bob Weston mastered the album.  If you are pressed for time, tracks 2 “Diamondback”, 4 “One Task”, and 6 “Tillman's Rag”, should give you a general idea what the record's about.  Very few of the songs feature accompaniment, though a few include mellotron and drum machine (track 1, “Three Sisters”, for example).  There is something of a drum explosion at the conclusion of track 11 “A Seat At The Table”.  The lyrics are predominately third-person narratives, save for a few stock-in-trade existential musings, such as the title track..
