Father John Misty – Chateau Lobby #4 (in C for Two Virgins) // True Affection

fatherjohnmisty

Father John Misty, the moniker of Josh Tillman and former member of Fleet Foxes released his sophomore album last month to near universal praise. Misty seems to have mastered the perilous arch between earnest artistry and satirical indifference, as Tillman’s natural talent merged with his unabashed lyricism is a risk that pays off in dividends on the new album. On the ironically titled LP, I Love You, Honeybear, the Baltimore-bred artist bands together a brazenly beautiful collection of music, covering everything from drugs, to religion, to marriage, and so much more.

“Chateau Lobby #4 (in C for Two Virgins)” is a melodic, feel-good folk number, appropriately dedicated to his wife and filled with playful harmonies, strings and mariachi horns towards the end. However, our truest adoration lies with the subsequent song to “Chateau,” the more electronic-leaning track entitled “True Affection.” The whole endeavor is worth experiencing start to finish though — find it on iTunes here.

Additionally, Father John Misty will be playing a sold-out show this Saturday at DC’s 9:30 Club so if you got tickets, good on you.
