Watch Father John Misty Perform Two Honeybear Tracks On Seth Meyers

The last time Father John Misty was on a late-night show, he brought along canned laughter to announce the release of I Love You, Honeybear on Letterman.

Watch Florence Welch & Father John Misty Cover “Love Hurts” At Coachella

Last weekend, as Florence + The Machine were playing the Coachella main stage just before Drake’s headlining spot, Florence Welch broke her foot.

The 8 Best Moments Of Coachella 2015 Saturday

Father John Misty just released his excellent sophomore album I Love You, Honeybear, and he stopped by the CBC’s Studio Q to talk about it and play a couple of songs.

Album Of The Week: Father John Misty I Love You, Honeybear

Father John Misty left a successful band and invented a whole new persona just so he could get away from the idea of cliche. And then he fell in love, the biggest cliche of all.

Watch Father John Misty Play Three New Songs On WFUV

Late last year Father John Misty served up a huge helping of his sardonic, postmodern take on American society by performing “Bored In The USA” on Letterman, which definitely set the tone for his sophomore album, I Love You Honeybear.

Stream A MIDI Version Of I Love You, Honeybear On Father John Misty’s New Digital Music Service

Josh Tillman, the former Fleet Foxes drummer who reinvented himself as the ’70s boho lounge-lizard singer-songwriter, appears to be no fan of the whole stream-an-album-the-week-before-it’s-out internet-marketing plan. Next month, Tillman will release I Love You, Honeybear, the second Father John Misty album, and we’ve already heard the early songs “Bored In The USA” and “ChateauMore »

Will 2015 Be The Year Of The ’70s Singer-Songwriter?

The beginning of Natalie Prass’ album is both plainspoken and grandiose. Prass pours out her heart with a pillowy gentleness, her words fluttering like feathers as she details her internal turmoil.
