The next installment of the Avalanche Records Album Club, is a wonderful album from the brother of J. Tillman (he of Fleet Foxes fame) it is called Pearly Gate Music and is a lovely little album we think should get lots of recognition. Although it isn’t a Scottish act which we try to specialise on this here site. It is excellent and not getting the recognition it truly deserves. And since it is our choice for the album club this edition, we are selling it online at a special price of £9.99 while the stocks do last.
Pearl and the Puppets to play an instore at Avalanche Records on the 6th of May at 5pm
Three years ago Pearl was just another music-loving shopgirl (Woolworths) and student (primary school teacher). She was classically trained (on woodwind) and could bash out a tune (on piano). But she’d never so much as picked up a guitar. Then, aged 19, she bought a guitar. She taught herself how to play it and quickly wrote some songs. Within a matter of months she’d set up a myspace and posted four demos. Within a week, the first record label contacted her.
