Father John Misty - I Love You, Honeybear mp3 album

I Love You, Honeybear is the second studio album by American folk musician Josh Tillman under his pseudonym Father John Misty. It was released on February 9, 2015, in the UK and Europe by Bella Union, and in the rest of the world on February 10, 2015, by Sub Pop. Produced by both Tillman and Jonathan Wilson, this is Tillman's second studio album since his departure from Fleet Foxes. The album was also mixed by Phil Ek, and mastered by Greg Calbi at Sterling Sound

I Love You, Honeybear is a concept album about a guy named Josh Tillman who spends quite a bit of time banging his head against walls, cultivating weak ties with strangers and generally avoiding intimacy at all costs. This all serves to fuel a version of himself that his self-loathing narcissism can deal with. We see him engaging in all manner of regrettable behavior. Father John Misty, Sub Pop’s Album Announcement. I Love You, Honeybear Q&A.

I Love You, Honeybear Lyrics: Oh, Honeybear, Honeybear, Honeybear, Mascara, blood, ash and cum, On the Rorschach sheets where we make love, Honeybear, Honeybear, Honeybear, Fuck the world, damn straight. The titular and opening track from Josh Tillman’s 2015 sophomore album as Father John Misty, the song introduces listeners to the relationship between Josh Tillman - of whom Father John Misty is an alter-ego of sorts - and his now-wife, Emma. The track has been a part of his live set since 2012. The song is part autobiography and part satire.

Following his scintillating debut under the Father John Misty moniker-2012’s Fear Fun-journeyman singer/songwriter Josh Tillman delivers his most inspired and candid album yet. Filled with gorgeous melodies and grandiose production, I Love You, Honeybear finds Tillman applying his immense lyrical gifts to questions of love and intimacy. Chateau Lobby 4 (In C for Two Virgins) is a radiant folk tune, burnished by gilded string arrangements and mariachi horn flourishes.

For all the layers of irony on I Love You, Honeybear, the biggest irony of all might be that such an ostensibly knotty and confusing album’s real strength lies in something as prosaic and transparent as its author’s ability to write a beautiful melody.

I Love You, Honeybear, Josh Tillman's second full-length as Father John Misty, is by turns passionate and disillusioned, tender and angry, so cynical it's repulsive and so openhearted it hurts. The album ends with what were apparently his first words to his wife: "Seen you around. A few lines earlier, he had us at the brink of their deaths.

Father John Misty left a successful band and invented a whole new persona just so he could get away from the idea of cliche. And then he fell in love, the biggest cliche of all. FJM is, of course, Josh Tillman, a young man who escaped a fundamentalist Christian upbringing in suburban Maryland to spend his ’20s working low-paying jobs and releasing sincere, downtrodden folk album after sincere, downtrodden folk album. Somewhere in there, he joined Fleet Foxes as the band’s drummer. For a moment, he felt like he was saved

Produced with great care once again by Jonathan Wilson, Honeybear has the architecture of its predecessor, but features braver melodic choices, and at a pure pop level, is the far more challenging LP of the two, but it rewards the listener constantly, whether it's delivering the yin and the yang via electro-pop tomfoolery ("True Affection"), '70s. soul-pop schmaltz ("When You're Smiling and Astride Me"), or straight-up Randy Newman-inspired socio/political balladry ("Bored in the USA"), the latter of which even manages to incorporate a laugh track.
