Friday Mailbag: J Tillman, Fleet Foxes & Lykke Li

Amazing news. J Tillman is now a member of Fleet Foxes. Basically, adding his amazing talents to an already great band means there is potential for greatness.

The only down side is I wonder what's going to happen with J and his already completed solo record. Hopefully someone wises up and distributes it or he can open up for the band and get the attention he deserves. Either way, congrats J and huzzah to Fleet Foxes for realizing they can benefit from having him around.

Usually it's not worth the effort required to try to write about big acts, but I've been listening to Lykke Li a lot lately. I don't think the fact that everyone else loves her should make me like her less (but it often does).

The notes move with a quiet confidence, and it's like watching a woman walk gracefully across a room, slowly drawing the eye of every man in the joint. She knows she doesn't need to try, and as a result she's completely compelling.

Lykke is here with blog darling El Perro Del Mar. The show is May 14th @ the Red Room and should be terrific.

Wow...The Fleet Foxes is only getting better. I really hope the band Siberian can get more respect now (they were the ones who told me about J Tillman and The Fleet Foxes).

There are some great videos around of Lykke Li doing - take away show-esque - videos of her songs in the bathroom for example...

crossing my fingers for an actual take away show sometime soon.

Also, I gotta tell you... I laugh (I know I'm juvenile) everytime I hear her say her own name "Lick Lee"...
