New Cemetery: “Tillmans” And “Riffs”

Calling the latest two songs from Cemetery “comforting” probably implies that they are more easygoing than they really are — “Tillmans” and “Riffs” still force me to go to all of my favorite descriptions (“shadowy,” “unsettling,” “like walking around a sunny park but clouds keep following you”), but the prior plays out like a lullaby. One offset by ominous synths lurking in the distance, but still highlighted by bright notes and musicbox touches. The latter…is far more icy, building from a whisper to something a bit more hair-raising, so yeah let’s not use comforting for that one. But “Tillmans” is a really nice number, one that works wonder when you want to relax a bit or feel creeped out. Listen above.
