–Featured Release: Father John Misty: “Pure Comedy”

Genre: Indie-Folk/Americana // Label: Sub Pop Records

Background:

Few artists have enjoyed as much hype and general chatter surrounding a new release as Father John Misty in 2017.  On the heels of 2015’s hit album I Love You, Honeybear, this week we will observe an even darker and more theatrical side of Josh Tillman.  Embracing the piano and his penchant for sarcasm-riddled balladry, Pure Comedy offers a very different, often bitter view on mankind.  Certain to be divisive (seeming the only way he knows), we’re not sure quite what to expect from this 74-minute behemoth of an album.  All we know is that it is going to be talked about.  A lot.

Listen to the title track, “Pure Comedy”, below:

Huge week.

DoofusWainwright

Father John Misty, Future Islands, New Pornographers, Timber Timbre...pretty good week of releases in prospect. A few expected meh releases in Cold War Kids and GBV but I guess they could surprise.

DoofusWainwright
04.04.17
Everyone saying the New Pornographers is their best yet...but no Dan Bejar. Colour me skeptical.

ScuroFantasma
04.04.17
New Harlott should be cool. Not sure what I'll think of Ulver's latest but I'm pretty curious/hopeful.

Relinquished
04.04.17
new Clark and Fuoco Fatuo need coverage here

Y'all better not skip that Arca record. Clark, Future Islands, and San Fermin bound to be interesting as well.

SowingSeason

TalonsOfFire

I'd put electronica for the Ulver album, they haven't been black metal for 20 years.

SowingSeason
04.04.17
lol just going by the tags on this site
haven't actually ever listened to ulver

TalonsOfFire

I recommend jamming Shadows of the Sun. It's one of the best ambient albums I've ever heard, and I have a feeling you'd really like it. Their early records heavily influenced Agalloch too, but they completely changed genres in the late 90s and have been doing experimental/electronica/ambient music.

Dewinged
04.05.17
Ulverrrrr, also a few interesting picks I haven't heard. Didn't like what I heard of FJM, so I'll probably pass.

Dewinged

"I'm going to try to check out almost half of these releases which is crazy."

I'll probably check 80% of these
