J. Tillman/Father John Misty
« on: Oct 09, 2012, 02:49 PM »
This song makes me want to go to film school, then write a western, produce and direct it, just so I can put it on the soundtrack at the climax of the film.    Anybody want to go to acting school so you can be my hero (or anti-hero)?


(wish I could find the studio version but this AINT bad.)

Sounds like exactly what you should do. I really like this song too. I think I like J. Tillman more than I like Fleet Foxes. He definitely made the right decision to leave the Fox.

I'm new to him, the Father John Misty album being my first and only exposure. Fear Fun really is a great one though, one of the best things I've heard this year. Which of his older albums do you guys recommend?

That's a cool song, Dave.  :beer:

I only have one solo album, Year In The Kingdom.    I liked it when I first got it OK but didn't give it much attention.   But now, like you, l fell in love with Fear Fun and went back to it.   Now I want more.    Alady has been a fan for a long time I know.   I was going to ask her what her favorite was.   I think there are several other solo albums.

Minor Works is pretty good too.  I need to check out FJM.
The trouble with the straight and the narrow is it's so thin, I keep sliding off to the side

Fortunate to pick up two tix at face last night off of Craigslist for the Ms and I.
We're really pumped for the show tonight based on all we've heard and seen online.
Thank you all for bringing Tillman/Misty to my attention!

I waited a while before posting my comments just to let it all soak in and have a chance to listen to the vinyl version of Fear Fun which I bought at the show and listened to tonight.

The album is a good one, no doubt, but I'll need some more listens to really pass final judgement.

The show on Sat night left me a bit flat.  It was good, to be sure, but it didn't really elevate a notch or two from the studio versions of the tunes which I expect from a live show and after hearing all of the hype.  Plus, the show was only an hour long, including the encore.  Is this the best they could put out for a sold out show on a Sat night?  Maybe it was an off night.

The highlight of the night was running into Sassbox and Brock at the bar, unexpectedly, and watching the show with them!

I saw FJM at ACL.  I thought he was great.  I am still interested in why he only sings and does not play guitar or drums.  He seems to be a gifted muli instrumentalist and would like to see him mix that in on a live stage.   He has pretty good but odd stage presence.   My brother and buddy that saw him with me were new to him and thought he was one of the better performance of the festival.
