Father John Misty, I Love You Honeybear

Former Fleet Foxes’ drummer Josh Tillman’s second solo effort under his Father John pseudonym is part love letter to wife Emma, part mystifying attack on targets unknown but almost all glorious.
There’s Beach Boys-like pop (the title track), pseudo-country (the brilliantly titled Nothing Good Ever Happens at the Goddamn Thirsty Crow) and early Arcade Fire like rockers (The Ideal Husband is particular fine in this category).
Some of his language is a trifle choice and his attacks on others can be a little painful to listen to but overall it’s in a league and a field all of its own.
Like this? Try these: The High Llamas, Gideon Gaye; Arcade Fire, Funeral
