The Tillers - By The Signs (Independent)
For those of us who keep an enthusiastic eye on the Americana scene, the revival of the ol' time string band has provided a bonus dollop of icing on an ever-expanding cake. Perhaps the initial impetus came as a result of the popularity of the "Oh Brother..." film and soundtrack, but that was over a decade ago, and new bands still seem to be coming through.

The Tillers, from Cincinnati, got together in 2007, when three friends, Mike Oberst, Sean Geil, and Jason Soudrette, in their own words, "began thumping around with some banjos and guitars and a big wooden bass". Their progression has been conspicuous. Their debut "Ludlow Street Rag" appeared in 2009, Soudrette left in early 2010 to be replaced by Aaron Geil (brother of Sean), and their new record continues their exploration of a genre that takes in old jazz and blues, Appalachian gospel and dustbowl folk. They add to the pot an approach that was fired in the local punk clubs of their youth, and the result is a band that is fully aware of their musical history, but is just as determined to embrace new ways.

"Cardinal Train 50-51" provides a propitious opening, an apposite story song with a weaving fiddle. "Lonesome Day" mixes up some Hemingway inspired imagery with a sombre backing and "George Street Beat" froths like its title suggests. There's no doubting The Tillers are fine musicians and singers, and although they're hardly country boys, they sound like the real deal to me.

I thoroughly enjoyed The Tillers old time sound and so did my son. It is refreshing to see a younger generation embracing this genre of music. Good job!
