Don't Fear Fun, it's Father John Misty

About time we had a thread, a number of us like the album, and perhaps some newbies trundling through will pass comment.

I listened to it again today, it really grows on me with each listen. I love the lyrics. My favourite song at the moment is Only Son of a Ladiesman

Father John Misty - Only Son of the Ladiesman - David Letterman 5-1-12 - YouTube

I'll post my interview with him when it goes live. He's a cool dude. Seeing him live in 22 days' time.

I really like This Is Sally Hatchet, it has a Beatles sort of vibe I dig.

Me too. A lot of the album reminds me of The Beatles actually - Tee Pees reminds me of Rocky Raccoon.

The ending of Sally Hatchet also reminds me of Pyramid Song.

That track reminds me of The Beatles too. So does I'm Writing A Novel.

Good album. I really hope he/they come through here on tour.

Gee, I wonder if he's writing a paperback by any chance.

Just listening to this album again now, I am really struck by how rapidly the mood shifts from completely frivolous and irreverent on Tee-Pees to earnest and affecting on Everyman Needs a Companion. Yet the two tracks flow perfectly together musically. Kind of reminds me of Stray Cat Blues-Factory Girl to Salt of the Earth on Beggars Banquet, and that is about the highest compliment I can pay.

I didn't like Sally Hatchet at first because I found it to be too Beatles-esque. It has grown on me since, however.
I really like the lyrics to Learning to Love the War. They're kinda awkward and teetering on cheesy, but tiptoe that line nicely. Unique subject matter too.
I don't think I can really pick a favourite at the moment. Too many good ones.

The number of times I've watched that Letterman performance will remain a well-guarded secret.

I only just got the CD earlier this week and though it's been playing constantly in my car to and from work and running errands, I haven't been able to focus on it and I don't know all the song titles and stuff yet so I can't even comment on which songs I like best. But I can say that so far there's nothing I don't like.

I guess it just took me out of the album at first. Instead of a record of his tunes, it was a record of his tunes with a Beatles homage sangwiched in the middle

Is that a typo or a pun? Either way, it's a good one.

I love this CD. Seeing him on the 20th, too.

I hadn't realized at first that this was not his first solo CD, and not his first under the FJM name. But I didn't see anything else listed on Amazon. Am I missing something, or do I just have to dig deeper to find those records?
