REVIEW | I Love You, Honeybear – Father John Misty

Since adopting the pseudonym of “Father John Misty” in 2012, Joshua Tillman has made a name for himself with his love/hate brand of folk swagger. As uncompromising and self-indulgent as it is, I Love You, Honeybear is a thrilling exploration of this Misty character’s social impotency. Addressing subjects of drug abuse, sexual deviance and hedonism, it is just over 44 minutes of beautiful instrumentation and contradicting, slightly morbid, lyricism, which all comes to a head at the tragically beautiful track “Bored in the USA”.  Give it a listen and you might just want this poor bastard to get back on his feet.

    I was obsessed with this album for a good month! Did you enjoy this one better than his previous one? I feel like this one was more centered on this “misty character” like you mentioned.
