Oh, you guys. The new Father John Misty album came out yesterday, and it is just everything I hoped it would be. Maybe more.
If you’re of the mindset that there are two kinds of music listeners, those who listen for musical qualities and those who listen for lyrics, (a theory I’m 80% invested in), I’d classify myself as the former. I’m a sucker for soaring harmonies and arrangements. However, one of the things I love the most about Father John Misty is his lyrics. In this album, he bounces back and forth from smitten lover to total douche bag to comedian. AND the melodies are beautiful. The perfect album.
My favorites so far?
2. Chateau Lobby #4 (in C for Two Virgins)
4. The Night Josh Tillman Came To Our Apartment
6. Nothing Good Ever Happens At The Goddamn Thirsty Crow
