Single Of The Week: Father John Misty : Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings
Ex-Fleet Foxes drummer J Tillman has emerged from the chrysalis all hot and snarky and hypnotic, kicking off his retooled solo career under the moniker Father John Misty. Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings is the second single released from his forthcoming album Fear Fun (out April 27) and it has been on super high rotation on all my iDevices since I saw him play some very odd but oddly amazing shows at SXSW. This song is dark, funny and mesmerising, with a swinging beat and a pealing refrain that tears at your head with its spiky, suggestive undertones. Makes my throat feel like it’s closing over just a little bit.
