20. Tilly & The Wall

Nebraska’s Tilly & The Wall have been accused by some of being a bit of a gimmick, namely because their drummer literally taps out the rhythms, but on third album O, the songs are finally strong enough to do all the talking. First single, the bitchy ‘Pot Kettle Black’, even appeared on a recent episode of Beverly Hills 90210, like, how rad is that? Elsewhere, ‘Falling Without Knowing’ marries an unforgettable chorus with brilliant no-wave keyboards, whilst ‘Beat Control’ was nearly an actual hit single. Madness.
