mojo-photo-tillyandwall.jpgOkay, dumb DJ with the stupid name, if you’re so mad at Coldplay and were kind of underwhelmed by the Lil Wayne album, what do you like? Anything? Or are you just sitting there on your laptop, copy-and-pasting “this sucks” over and over? Alright, inner voice, you shut up, I like stuff, lots of stuff. Here’s something: Tilly and the Wall are a 5-piece from Omaha, reason enough to like them, but their claim to fame is that instead of a drummer, they have a tap dancer. Take that, inner voice. Their new album, O, comes out tomorrow, and we’ve got an mp3 of the first single, a spunky number called “Pot Kettle Black.” Yeah, there’s a drum set in use here, but the rhythm is still mostly about the tap-dancing stomp, as well as the gleeful punk intensity.
