Ideally, we’d never start the week with something this downtempo but alas, life. Father John Misty is the solo project of J. Tillman, the original Fleet Foxes drummer. And it doesn’t sound like he’s doing all that bad on his own.
“Nancy From Now On” is a sad, hopeless ballad of a man who has completely just given up.
Oh pour me another drink
And punch me in the face
You can call me Nancy
You had us at “Oh.”
Father John Misty will be among many bands performing at San Francisco’s Outside Lands festival this year. The lineup is pretty amazing for a $225 3-day pass, and expect me to post more from it over the next few months (or until tickets sell out, because then what’s the point?)
