Father John Misty (aka Joshua Tillman) is back with, ‘I Love You Honeybear,’  his sophomore release under the Father John Misty moniker. ‘I Love You, Honeybear’ was recorded intermittently from 2013 to 2014 in Echo Park, Los Angeles and produced with Jonathan Wilson, who also recorded and produced 2012’s ‘Fear Fun.’

This is a fairly experimental record, in that Josh and the band “experimented” with several different approaches for each song even though the arrangements and styling are fairly classic. Taking a larger producer role this time around gave him license to “indulge no small degree of ambivalence and uncertainty.” The material demanded a new way of being made and it took some time before that revealed itself. What came out is something meticulous but natural, dense but still spacious. Josh says “mostly I had to overcome the temptation to think that the method by which the last record was made would suffice this time around too.”
