Father John Misty


It seemed incredibly dumb for Josh Tillman to leave his post as Fleet Foxes' drummer, which is exactly what he did last January. But before he'd even joined up with the Seattle-based folkies, the 31-year-old Tillman had proven capable of a productive solo career by releasing four albums of stern, modest folk of his own. This year catches Tillman performing as Father John Misty, and his first album under the moniker, Fear Fun, marks a shift in sound, with quicker, fuller songs that feature country linings and sturdy hooks in addition to the sense of dry humor that made Tillman a crowd favorite at Fleet Foxes gigs. Also, the strum-happy rambler "I'm Writing a Novel" is one of the funniest songs of the year. Also, note the first word in the album's title and the fact that Tillman's coming to town on Halloween.
