Father John Misty—Joshua Tillman since leaving Fleet Foxes—is not your average priest. He pushes disenchantment with love rather than a higher power. In his sophomore album, Tillman confirms his gifts of wit, vocals, and style. With sardonic lyrics throughout I Love You, Honeybear, Tillman captures love in all of its chaotic beauty.
