After signing to independent record label Western Vinyl, Tillman released two albums in 2009, Vacilando Territory Blues and Year In The Kingdom. Tillman said he wrote the title track of Vacilando Territory Blues to describe imagery he associates with his move to Seattle. His brother Zach subsequently moved there as well and is now in the musical group Pearly Gate Music. The following year Tillman released Singing Ax. After extensive touring with Fleet Foxes, promoting their album Helplessness Bl. .

Vacilando Territory Blues. From the first richly harmonized notes, Vacilando Territory Blues, Tillman's fifth album and first for Western Vinyl, only confirms that impression: Featuring two Foxes and a similarly deep-woods sound, the album may bring to mind the glacial songs of Damien Jurado, the subdued shimmer of Mark Kozelek's solo material, or the outdoorsy languor of Great Lake Swimmers, but it ultimately.

Vacilando Territory Blues is J. Tillman's fifth solo album, but it’s his first after joining celebrated indie band Fleet Foxes as drummer and his first on the Western Vinyl label. The record remains loyal to his distinct brand of intimate, lo-fi singer/songwriter fare, but offers a few faster tempos and a broader expanse of instrumentation than prior works with the help of several collaborators, including Foxes bandmates Casey Wescott and Christian Wargo. These songs work well with the more tonally somber ones in the flow of the record, however, the spare guy-and-guitar pieces continue to be Tillman's wheelhouse. For instance, "Vessels" is a standout; a poetic remembrance, at once both haunting and sweet - even pretty - with melody in spades.

Summary: Fleet Foxes' newest member, Joshua Tillman releases his fifth solo album, the first on the Western Vinyl label. Record Label: Western Vinyl. Genre(s): Indie, Rock.

The label writes: "Vacilando Territory Blues, came as the result of three different recording attempts in 2008, in which entire sessions were scrapped, and ultimately the majority of the final material would surface and be recorded days before mastering. The push and pull of this record veers sharply from the tone of Tillman's previous releases, which for the most part, adhere to a singular mood and stylistic execution.
