JOHN FATHER MISTY – Another Winner With 5th Album ‘CHLOË AND THE NEXT 20TH CENTURY’

8 April 2022

Artist: FATHER JOHN MISTY
Who: Singer-songwriter (real name: Joshua Michael Tillman)
from Rockville, Maryland, U.S.

New album: CHLOË AND THE NEXT 20TH CENTURY – his fifth LP
Released: 8 April 2022 via Sub Pop

NME says: “On album five, Mr Tillman’s ambitious, big band-style visions and bossa nova experiments (yes, really) come to life with thrilling effect… Besides its flirtations with big band-style instrumentals, ‘Chloë and the Next 20th Century’ serves as a gorgeously crafted highlight reel of the singer’s many previous styles and guises, rather than a complete reinvention. Much of it is delivered with a wink, and is as dramatically brooding as his past work; every track is vivid yet still quietly dark as it conjures various kinds of lamentation.” Score: 5/5.

Turn Up The Volume: This FJM album sounds like a tribute to the great late singer-songwriter Harry Nilsson (1941 – 1994), most famous for his big hits Everybody’s Talkin and Without You. And that’s a good thing. FJM can join the21st Century crooners club with members such as Nick Cave, Bon Iver, Bill Callahan & Bonnie Prince Billy, and other related songsmiths.
