Father John Misty’s Terrific New Album ‘Fear Fun’

I have spent much of the last 72 hours listening to Father John Misty‘s new album Fear Fun. It is outstanding.

(Father John Misty is the name of Josh Tillman’s new solo outfit; Tillman is the former drummer of Fleet Foxes.)

I heard “Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings” on Indie Rock Cafe a few weeks ago, and I liked it well enough, but it didn’t blow me away.

However, once I got tickets to see Father John Misty play here in Dallas – show is tonight at Sons of Hermann Hall – I figured I better delve into the entire record and get myself prepared.

I sure am glad I did, because it is filled with outstanding songs.

“Radioactive” by Imagine Dragons

Here is a very intense song, for those of you who like intense songs.

It’s called “Radioactive” by Imagine Dragons. The video below is actually a promo video for The Secret World. The visuals seem pretty appropriate for the song.

“Down The Road” by C2C

It could be a long day over at Lost at E Minor. I haven’t been there in a while to check for new music, and of course the first song I listened to I loved…with many, many more still to go through.

And that song is “Down The Road” by C2C, a French turntable group formerly known as Coups2Cross that has won the Disco Mix Club World Team DJ Championship four years in a row (2003–2006) (via Wikipedia).

Their songs are available on iTunes.

“Ho, Hey” by the The Lumineers

If you’ve followed this site for a while, you know that I’m a sucker for a good, catchy folk song with good lyrics. “Ho, Hey” by The Lumineers qualifies. It’s a short, lovely little track that will get your foot tapping and immediately have you reaching for the repeat button as soon as it’s over.

Hat tip to this recent New Release rundown at Indie Rock Cafe.

“Solid Gold” by AU

Been a while, but I’m back. Had to take a little hiatus from finding new music because of some time constraints, but I’ll be finding some new songs over the next several weeks as I get another mix together.

From the latest batch of New Releases at Indie Rock Cafe comes this song by Luke Wyland‘s band AU called “Solid Gold”.

“The Right One” by The Phenomenal Handclap Band

First off, I just want to say that I love the name of this band. The Phenomenal Handclap Band. What a terrific name for a band. I think they should do a remake of this handclappy song.

But before I get too far ahead of myself with them doing other peoples’ songs, how about we just enjoy them performing their own songs? And the first one I’ll present is “The Right One,” which I just found over at IRC’s latest rundown of new releases.

“Someone Like You” Adele Cover by Walk Off The Earth & Sarah Blackwood

We don’t usually feature songs that have been listened to my over 4 million people, as this song has been just on YouTube alone, but screw it. Walk Off The Earth’s cover of Adele’s “Someone Like You” is the quintessentially perfect cover. It stays true to the original song but features a unique twist (in this case the addition of a ukelele).

Regardless of the instruments though, this is a song that has to be carried by strong vocals – it is an Adele track after all – and Sarah Blackwood is more than capable.

“Change” by CHLLNGR – Great Track, Incredible Video

CHLLNGR apparently does not like vowels nor lower case letters. He does, however, clearly like making chill tunes with visually arresting videos.

Here is the video for his track “Change” that I just caught during my continued trip into the Lost at E Minor archives that I missed at the beginning of this year.

“Stamp” by The Rural Alberta Advantage

Another Lost At E Minor find today.

The song is called “Stamp” by the The Rural Alberta Advantage. Their website address is http://www.theraa.com, which makes it sound like some kind of governing body for rifles or recording artists. Regardless, this is a good track with a unique video.

“Middle of the Bed” by Lucy Rose

I’m a sucker for a woman with a beautiful, unique singing voice. I always have been. I’m sure I always will be. And now I have another such voice to enjoy listening to: Lucy Rose’s.

Below is the video for her song “Middle of the Bed.” It’s a good though unremarkable song made wonderful by her intoxicating vocals.
