After four years, the band Fleet Foxes is back with Crack-Up, a lush album full of harmonies, rich orchestration and…lots of literary and historical references—perhaps to frontman Robin Pecknold’s stint at Columbia University.

The album is a welcome listen for fans and a much-needed release after a stretch that has seen significant changes for the band members. As the Guardian reports:

“The album was recorded after a four-year hiatus, during which Pecknold studied at Columbia University and Fleet Foxes’ former drummer Josh Tillman unexpectedly became one of alt-rock’s most intriguing stars. Understandably, some critics have been keen to contrast Crack-Up with Pure Comedy, Tillmans’ latest album as Father John Misty, but it seems to bear more comparison to Bon Iver’s 22, A Million, another wilfully abstruse record made by an American alt-rocker who is disproportionately unsettled by a modicum of fame. On Crack-Up’s predecessor, Helplessness Blues, Pecknold spent a lot of time fantasising about jacking it all in to live on a deserted island, or to run an orchard. Now, he seems to have decided he can continue – but only if the music he makes takes a determined left turn.”

 

Fresh Stuff From Father John Misty

ILoveYouHoneybear

In 2012, underground folk artist Joshua Tillman aka J Tillman dropped an album titled Fear Fun under the moniker Father John Misty. We weren’t exactly sure what to make of the name, with the whole “father” bit, but we knew we liked what we heard: a pleasant blend of psychedelic rock, indie-folk and California pop.

This week, Father John is back with a new release, I Love You, Honeybear. In keeping with the spirit of Fear Fun, Tillman is at times mysterious, irreverent, passionate, trippy, odd and lovely—sometimes all in the same song.
