Father John Misty – I Love You Honeybear

  • April 12, 2015

Father John Misty (the mystical faux-bohemian alter ego of singer-songwriter Josh Tillman) follows 2012’s Fear Fun with I Love You, Honeybear – an autobiographical set about love, Tillman’s new marriage, and the complexities of relationships. The concept album, which runs for eleven tracks, is again on Sub Pop, and certain formats/editions come with limited release cassettes, poster, instructional pamphlet,and other swag. Again Father John Misty merges the ridiculous with sublime all wrapped in Laurel Canyon rock, pop, folk, and country. Standouts include the title track, “Ideal Husband”, and pointedly Randy Newman-esque “Bored in the USA.” – Written by JFelton
