11 Songs, 44 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Following his scintillating debut under the Father John Misty moniker—2012’s Fear Fun—journeyman singer/songwriter Josh Tillman delivers his most inspired and candid album yet. Filled with gorgeous melodies and grandiose production, I Love You, Honeybear finds Tillman applying his immense lyrical gifts to questions of love and intimacy. “Chateau Lobby 4 (In C for Two Virgins)” is a radiant folk tune, burnished by gilded string arrangements and mariachi horn flourishes. Elsewhere, Tillman pushes his remarkable singing voice to new heights on the album’s powerful centerpiece, “When You’re Smiling and Astride Me,” a soulful serenade of epic proportions. “I’d never try to change you,” he sings, clearly moved. “As if I could, and if I were to, what’s the part that I’d miss most?”

No sophomore jinx here

Heard a press copy of “I Love You, Honeybear” and it is another lyrical tour de force. There isn’t a wittier, more self-assured yet self-deprecating, razor sharp lyricist around. This is an early record of the year candidate without a doubt. I love it. You’re going to love “The Night Josh Tillman Came to Our Apartment”. This guy is a freight train through the Catskills.

10 out of 10 will listen to again...and again.

I have been laying on my living room floor for the past hour basking in the beautiful hymns of Father John Misty.
Have you ever heard an album that simultaneously created a fire in your loins and made joyous tears fall from your ducts?

Now is your chance.
