Fleet Foxes’ J. Tillman will release his 7th full-length solo album on September 14. Singing Ax was recorded in just three days this past February 2010, by Steve Albini at Electrical Audio in Chicago. Bob Weston mastered the album. According to Tillman, “Very few of the songs feature accompaniment, though a few include mellotron and drum machine (track 1, ‘Three Sisters,’ for example). There is something of a drum explosion at the conclusion of track 11 ‘A Seat At The Table.’ The lyrics are predominately third-person narratives, save for a few stock-in-trade existential musings, such as the title track.”
