Listen up: Album of the week
Father John Misty; I Love You, Honeybear (Bella Union)
A former member of Fleet Foxes, Joshua Tillman has carved out an intriguing career as a solo artist. This latest album is a slow-burning charmer that shows he has blossomed since stepping out from behind the drum-kit.
Tillman's songs cast a cold light on romantic entanglements and offer a sometimes fatalistic world view. Some favour a spare arrangements, others are more sumptuously orchestrated.
