Released:
Label: Sub Pop Records
Former Fleet Fox J. Tillman has christened himself Father John Misty after already releasing seven albums under his own name. The new moniker not only unlocks a more expansive sound for the solo artist, but also reveals Tillman to be quite the quirky poet. Where his past releases have been rather lo-fi, Fear Fun is all pastoral Laurel Canyon folk-rock, rich with rustling mandolin, guitar, tambourine, piano and organ. But his storytelling is the main attraction here -- even if sometimes the druggy non-sequiturs can get a little hard to follow (like, ironically, on "I'm Writing a Novel").
