Father John Misty Misses Fleet Foxes

June 17, 2017

Back when he was better known as Josh Tillman, Father John Misty sat behind the drum kit for Fleet Foxes, both on 2011's Helplessness Blues and for the ensuing tour run. And though he's built a solid career for himself under his new moniker, the release of Fleet Foxes'  new album Crack-Up yesterday apparently brought back some fond memories for Tillman, and he took to Twitter to express them. 

"Congratulations to my friends today, an incredible album and a group of people I love and miss," FJM wrote, rightly praising Robin Pecknold and company's beautifully expansive new effort. He even singled out his favorite track from the record, calling "I Should See Memphis" a "stunner." 

FLM himself released the solid Pure Comedy earlier this year, so the singer probably isn't exactly yearning to rejoin his old bandmates, but it's nice to see musicians send something besides an endless stream of snark to their former partners.

Considering tomorrow's holiday, let's all take this Father's advice and listen to Crack-Up below.
