Listen To This: Like Rainbow Brite On Acid!

| Filed under: Listen To This

Bright and colorful is the best way to describe the music of Tilly and the Wall.

They have just released a video for Beat Control, which is a big ball of goodness.

Bjork would love the clip! And the song sounds like the Jackson 5, Junior Senior and the Hidden Cameras squeezed into one juicy glass of not-from-concentrate yumminess.

CLICK HERE to check out the vid and hear the song for Beat Control and then click here to check out some other cool tunes from Tilly And the Wall!

    :(

    Tilly and the Wall used to be my favorite band way back when they were all cool and stuff. This isn't Tilly.

    "JK LOLZ"
    …right?

    BOO this sounds like everything else out there… WHERE IS THE TAP DANCING?!

  9. come on... says – reply to this


    109

    seriously perez
    tilly and the wall have been around forever
    dont act like youre "discovering" these bands that have been awesome long before you put them on your website…

  10. Really? says – reply to this

    First and foremost:
    Tilly and the Wall are from OMAHA, NEBRASKA. Not Kansas City. And there are some really great bands from both cities. Which ties into..

    Second most:
    The video is made by Cody Critcheloe and Drew Bolton from the Ssion, who ARE from Kansas City. Cody Critcheloe's current goal is making the GAYEST MUSIC and MUSIC VIDEOS POSSIBLE, both seriously and semi humorously. If you look up any of the current Ssion videos you will see what I mean.
    So yes, this video is over the top. And I can guarantee you they one hundred percent meant it to be that way.

    Thirdly:
    I'm sorry. Are any of you actually Bjork? …What's that? No? So how could you know what she likes? She might love it, she might hate it, but I really think it's absurd that there is any debate over whether she does or doesn't. As if Bjork is the end all be all word on what is worthy of being listened to or watched. Jesus christ.

    117

    IF this is your favorite band. BE HAPPY!!! Tilly will have so many more fans because of this!! No… not everyone will like it, but that's okay!

    Hey Perez, there is some new band called The Shins. You should "discover" them before the general public does. They would probably be up your alley. Can you imagine, The Shins setting the mood, while Perez, greasy and fat from eating fried chicken all day long makes sweet love to some Asian boy prostitute he picked up in North Hollyoowd

    Why is everyone so mean and negative? I thought it was really cool and different, visually stimulating. Thanks Perez for sharing this! Maybe more people will get into their other stuff and get to experience the awesomeness of Tilly :)

    Re: Kelly – i agree. ive been an avid tilly fan for 4 years, seen them twice (incredible), and they always play at my favorite small venue in cleveland heights. tilly is amazing and i dont feel like this is a good representation of them.

    all y'all need to stop hating. i've listened to (and been friends with) tilly and the wall since their very first show in omaha. so they're experimenting with their sound. they're still the same uber-talented, highly creative and fun-loving kids they always were. i personally love this song and i'm excited to see what new direction they take. love ya tillies!

    too bad Tilly and the Wall have been out for awhile now. Come on, Perez. Find NEW acts, not ones who have a large following already.

  43. nick says – reply to this


    143

    Perez…theres this new bands out of Queens, NY called "The Ramones". Perhaps you should post their shit on here and 'discover them'.

    You have no claim on this shit and this is probably the worst representation of their music.

  54. S says – reply to this


    154

    Tilly and the Wall has been my favorite bands for years. And you're just finding out about them now? And plus, this isn't even the typical Tilly and the Wall sound…try listening to their other two albums instead.

  55. Kelly says – reply to this


    155

    I like it but not as much some of their older stuff. but way to support omaha indie bands go perez!!!

  56. sean says – reply to this


    156

    they've been around for awhile…don't know if it's still true, but back in the day, they used a tapdancer instead of a drummer:)

  57. matt ramage says – reply to this


    157

    well
    i used to be a huge tilly and the wall fan…
    expecially in their bottms of barrels album
    but this is so far form their style
    i dont understand this..
    where are the powerful vocals and lyrics…
    where is the tap dancing instead of drums…
    where are the strings…
    where is tilly and the wall?
    im not digging this to much

    Put up some GOOD Tilly and the Wall, this song does not represent them. How about some 'Nights of the Living Dead' or 'You and i Missbehaving'.

    Strange, definately not their normal sound. They should stick to songs like Bad Education……..I saw them live and they're amazing!! Tap dancinggggg

  63. nanceinyourpants says – reply to this


    163

    tilly and the wall were always very bubbly and poppy, but this is complete SHIT. i had no idea they had a new album coming out, and the fact that they abandoned their innovative tap dancing in favor of electric drums is bullshit. listen to their first two albums, and then maybe you'll understand what this band was what they are all about when they were good. i doubt that they released this crap on saddle creek, because if they did i have lost all respect for what was once one of the best indie labels of all time. if you are going to use your influence to expose musical talent, you should probably do some more research rather than catapulting shit like this into the world, and giving little tweenies the wrong impression of what good music can actually be. perez, you should have no part in the music industry as your opinions are poisonous and your taste in music as displayed so far is utterly shitty. there is no other word. shitty. not that the music industry even exists any more anyway. you're getting into a dying business.
    and to tilly and the wall: you're joking with this, right?

  64. Kim says – reply to this


    164

    goddamnit perez stop ruining good music.

    tilly and the wall is not new, they're a fabulous indie band that's been around forever and apparently about to sell out. please stop exploiting good music.

  65. kendra says – reply to this


    165

    i like old tilly and the wall better, what happened to the tap dancer instead of electronic drums?

  66. =] says – reply to this


    166

    Watch them be in an Apple commercial. (I've been aTilly and the Wall fan for years now). If they do sell more stuff, kudos perez.

  67. o says – reply to this


    167

    perez is not supporting good omaha music. with the exception of cursive and two gallants, none of the saddle-creek/team love bands put out anything worth anything anymore. i would think one of derek's other bands, flamboyant gods, would be more perez's style, although I guess you can't really masturbate with fried chicken grease to it.

  68. pzh4eva says – reply to this


    168

    Re: nanceinyourpants
    its not even going to be the on the new album. go to www.team-love.com they are just releasing it as a single. so maybe it's you who needs to do the research before you post a dumb ass comment and dont tell perez to do his research when its clear you haven't done yours.

    hes just sharing good music with people. be happy for tilly.

    and tilly did have dancy songs like this on their previous albums. and these songs often didn't feature the amazing tapping of Jamie. look at freest man and a perfect fit. congrats tilly and the wall! i was excited to see you on here today!

  69. o says – reply to this


    169

    oh yea, omaha was brooklyn before brooklyn was brooklyn. perez, are you going to be talking about bands like dirty projectors and grizzly bear next year. when are you going to start going for rock bands with gay dudes like deerhunter and final fantasy and grizzly bear. this week alone we have found out you discovered tilly and the wall and love le tigre.

    173

    1) Tilly has been around forever. You didn't discover them.
    2) Omaha is amazing, and all of the bands from there are awesome and wayy better than the most of the crap indie-poser shit out there
    3) It's nice that they're getting exposure, but at the same time they have so much talent they didn't need it in the first place.
    4) Now there ARE going to be a bunch of 12 year old wannabes wearing rad clothes and black eyeliner and bangs going to their shows and being like "OH EHM GEE I love Tilly!" fuck that.

    OMAHA RULES. REP.RE.SENT.

    They put on an insane show; you always leave drowning in your own sweat, blood and tears.
    Love them!
    And Kiana is possibly one of the sweetest human beings you'll ever meet.
    They've deserved this kind of exposure!!

    This is the first time for me to hear this group. The song was nice, very upbeat…maybe a bit too upbeat, but it was easy to listen to…reminded me of some of my 70's-80's music, which I ♥ ♥ ♥
    This band certainly has the potential to make some good catchy songs. I'm interesting in hearing more of them now.

    Sounds like a couple of Alisha songs from the 80's

    Baby Talk or All Night Passion

    Anyone else hear the similarity?
