I Love You, Honeybear
Father John Misty - 2015
There is much to admire about Fleet Foxes. One of the most important aspects of the group is that they haven’t been able to release many albums. Also, they weren’t able to keep their grubby hands on former member Josh Tillman.
Honeybear is his second album and it’s a remarkable outing. The instrumentation is kaleidoscopic. Tillman’s delivery is rich and smooth. The lyrics are clever and often sensationally sarcastic. This witty and melodic album feels as though it comes to you as the love child of Elton John and Warren Zevon.
Let’s hope Tillman’s brand of peculiarity isn’t Fleeting.C. Scott Back
