AKA J. Tillman

In lieu of a great knowledge about him i'll let somebody compose a good intro page.

 

Obviously checked him out because of Lana, listening to I Love You, Honeybear right now and instantly grasped. He has such a classic voice, reminds me of John Denver. I could definitely be a fan..

Fear Fun is really good too. What are your favorites? I love Holy Shit and When You're Smiling Astride me, and pretty much all of the songs.

 

I love his songwriting because there's that good amount of irony and humor, but at the same time there's so much truth and stuff that's pretty autobiological. Production in the music is also so excellent, the laugh track in Bored in the USA is one of my favorite things ever.

Favourite songs straight away were The Night Josh Tillman Came To Our Apt., The Ideal Husband, Bored In The USA and Holy S**t.

 

Imma need to explore the J Tillman stuff too I'm in love

Father John Misty @ Lollapalooza mocking the commercialization of the festival joking that platinum pass holders "get to dry hump Lanna [sic] Del Rey", amongst other perks (3:47-4:35):


 
:awk:  :lmao:

P.S. Implicit Icona Pop ("some girl earlier") shade from 0:00-0:35. :teehee:
 
P.P.S. Father John Misty's between-song stand-up act/stage banter was the highlight of Lollapalooza, not Lana.

His J Tillman stuff is really dark and brooding and different but also good in a very different way

Have you listened to his previous album "Fear Fun"? It's just as brooding. I really like FJM's old Christain-Byzantine like imagery. And I played "Bored In The USA" for my school's scholarship lady. She laughed with the laugh track. Creative twist on music. I wish I could see him in concert, but his shows in my state are 21+!

Got Honeybear on vinyl today, the holes won't fit on my record player so I emailed the record company. Awaiting their response.  :defeated:

In the meantime take a knife (or a box cutter) and spin it around in the hole, it will scrape off enough to get it on, I've had to do this several times with records, and it works fine

Someone teach me how to be a fan of him. I've previewed a few songs on iTunes and I'm interested but not sold.

We'll have fun dealing with Sub Pop, their customer service was super shitty to me when they sent me out those warped deluxe versions of ILYHB and then took months to send replacements to everyone.

Father John Misty is so fucking cool.

 

I saw him in Austin, TX...he was amazing. His dancing made me laugh all night. I'm seeing him again at Lollapalooza...so excited now that I know the lyrics to most songs.

 

Really good. I can see why Lana loves him.

Yikes. Maybe I'll just contact Urban Outfitters. It's been 2 days and nothing from sup pop yet.

Yeah for sure email them, their customer service will send you a return label and will ship you another, I've exchanged bad records with them plenty times before, UO's customer service is surprisingly extremely pleasant to deal with

I found the tool I was looking for and I fixed it. I kinda hope Sub Pop doesn't reply now.  :facepalm: I was worried that prying it off my turntable would've affected it but it sounds beautiful.  :flutter:
