Editorial Reviews

Pearly Gate Music is an incredibly gifted gentleman by the name of Zach Tillman (although he records and usually plays live with a stylistic variety of full-band options), who makes beautiful, challenging, simple-yet-complicated songs structured around his extraordinary singing, vivid lyrics, and unusual melodic sense. Sometimes conjuring the feeling of a punk rock religious revival in an old-time prairie tent,sometimes stripped down to spare acoustic-guitar-and-lovely-croon, Tillman's music sounds as if it were written and performed by a bedraggled dust bowl poet influenced by whatever popular songs from the poor folk circuit were being sung after dinner in the parlors of his youth and who somehow managed to supernaturally absorb the sound of Lubbock circa 1955, Laurel Canyon circa 1968 and Berlin circa 1980. Blog world excitement is already palpable, following incendiary shows at SXSW, nationwide touring with J. Tillman, and regional shows with Xiu Xiu and Tune Yards.

I bought this album with minimal expectations. I just bumped into it heard some samples and assumed I'd like it enough to keep it. But the truth is this album really blew me away. The music here is very bold in that it takes risks for the sake of art, and doesn't try to conform to the generic folk/rock styles and elements. And the ventures aren't limited to the production or instrumentation values, but lyrical as well. In an indie world dominated by the bucolic and abstract themes of Fleet Foxes, Grizzly Bear and Bon Iver, one might not expect to hear words like "LAPTOP" or "3D glasses" in the genre, yet they are hear to be found, providing a tad of welcome discomfort so that the casual listening experience doesn't turn to a bland one. There is so much to be discovered on this album, many moods, themes, styles, minimal and lush alike. This dude, which I confess I don't know his name or where he's from, is a true modern day artist and not just indie driftwood. I think this album is too good to recommend, for I often disagree with mass opinions, so I'll just keep to myself and quietly take in all this little gem of an album has to offer.

Yes, this does sound a little like the Fleet Foxes. So what. Ignore the creep that gave this a bad review. Wonderful example of the new folk movement of people like Iron & Wine, M. Ward and others. It is just a wonderful album.

I think I read these guys were somehow related to the band that recorded White Winter Hymnal. Maybe they are, but this albumn doesn't have much appeal for me. I felt like it was put together pretty quick -- kinda raw, not energetically speaking. When I first listened I thought maybe I would listen again but I haven't done that. There are two solid tracks that move. Overall it feels like a project without too much spirit.
