Father John Misty - Fear Fun

For all their stark and fragile resonance, neither album that Joshua Tillman had previously released in the UK – Vacilando Territory Blues and Year in the Kingdom, both issued in 2009 – suggested Fleet Foxes’ drummer was destined for a solo career.

 

In fact, as diligent Josh fans knew, the latter of the two was already his sixth; and a seventh, Singing Ax, followed in 2010. Still, when Josh decided to leave the über-successful Seattlites, it seemed a bit risky. But he clearly knew something we didn’t.

 

Tillman’s first album as Father John Misty takes giant steps to underline his credentials, with a broader ambition, vocal reach and emotional gravitas. Tillman claims this was the result of leaving Seattle with “enough [magic] mushrooms to choke a horse,” and settling in Laurel Canyon, LA’s epicentre of soft-rock dreams, though another theory posits that his younger brother Zach could be the catalyst.
