Rarely inspired to write reviews, I saw that noone had said anything on the fantastic Tilly and the Wall and felt the need to re-right the balance of the universe. I bought this album off the back of a playlist by Michael Stipe of REM who had put Night Of The Living Dead on his top 10. That was two months ago and I pretty much haven't stopped playing this, I dont need to trouble myself with skipping the bad songs because there arent any, and I dont need to think about what mood im in and reflect it accordingly with my choice of music on my ipod because this album is just as perfect for when your getting ready to go out and when you wake up in the morning feeling like you have been unsed to unclog the blender.
Mainly female vocals, Tilly and The Wall includes a tap dancer who tapdances to the rhythms of the songs. It's amazing. If you aren't sure, then the songs to (legally!) download to check it out are:
You and I Misbehaving - the night before
I Always Knew - the morning after
But like I say, from beginning to end it's really really painfully good. Its a mystery to me that every man and his dog owns Death Cab and Modest Mouse and noone knows about Tilly. Buy it if you like Rilo Kiley, Sleepy Jackson, or the more upbeat of Saddle Creek artists. For that matter, just buy it anyway, if you hate it you can always give it to one of your musically superior friends

By EA Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 12 Feb. 2006
Format: Audio CD
If Bright Eyes, Rilo Kiley and Of Montreal had a head-on collision, the result might be something like Tilly and the Wall. Their oddball debut, "Wild Like Children," is best described as bright, childlike pop-rock set to dark, slightly cynical songwriting. In other words, enjoyably weird.
It opens with a charming mix of acoustic guitar, keyboards and... tap dancing? It sounds like applauding hands, but the poppy "Fell Down the Stairs" has tap dancing here and there. It adds to the cheery feel of the music. Things get grittier in songs like "Nights of the Living Dead," a groaning rock-song with calls of "I wanna f*ck it up! I wanna f*ck it up!" at the end.
After that comes "Bessa," which is pretty much straightforward folk music -- it sounds just a wee bit too catchy to be coffeehouse material. But the folky-poppy sound continues in most of the other songs, from the percussion-led "You And I Misbehaving" to the piano-pop "I Always Knew." The finale is a fifteen-minute opus that could have easily been chopped in half -- part is tap-dancey pop, and part is a plaintive ballad.
The first few songs of this album are a bit uneven -- it sounds like Tilly and the Wall are getting their act together. But when Derek Pressnal ominously intones, "Don't let the daytime get you down/'Cause we will be wild like children/once the black has veiled the sky," you know that they have hit their strange little stride.
The music seems like the best mix of gritty indierock and twee pop -- the tap-dancing, piano and acoustic guitar are reminiscent of catchy, whimsical folk-pop bands. And the vocals back that up -- Kianna Alarid, Derek Pressnal and Neely Jenkins harmonize their voices almost flawlessly.
