“Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings” - Father John Misty

Former Fleet Foxes member J. Tillman has given immediate weight to his foray into a solo career with his video for “Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings.” First thing, Aubrey Plaza is fucking shit up, eating flowers and being generally zany. This madcap version of Plaza matches nicely with the droning psychedelia of the song. Secondly, the song is impressive. Rather than sticking to the folkiness of Fleet Foxes, Tillman’s music is decidedly more bombastic without reaching for the rafters and has an understated catchiness. Finally, the video is wonderfully shot and sets a high bar for Fear Fun (Sub Pop, May 1), but his credentials thus far point to what is sure to be an excellent debut.

My favorite band Fleet Foxes, are soon to unveil their sophomore effort Helplessness Blues on May 3rd.  The title track is simply delicious and does not stray much from the formula of their first album, a good thing.  I love these boys and am shaking in anticipation for the album and tour.
