A little talk about love. Interview with Father John Misty

For many years, Joshua Tilman writes songs: for a while he was a drummer of Fleet Foxes, and after that he recorded 2 albums already as Father John Misty.

Due to the fact that the interview was taken on the eve of Valentine’s Day, Stefan Greiner devoted the column “A Little Talk About …” to the topic of love. This is no coincidence: Tilman’s album “I Love You, Honeybear” is filled with love, oysters, sex and massacres.

Benjamin Gibbard told Carlotta Aizela why this was supposed to happen and why, despite the fact that he sings mostly sad songs, Ben is the happiest person on Earth.

Benjamin, I’m sorry, but without a preface: Death Cab For Cutie without Chris Wall? Seriously?
The album is the beginning of a new chapter in the life of the group, which is clear as God’s day. This is our first record with a new producer, with a man from the side. The first 7 albums we wrote with Chris. Continue reading
