After watching the surreal freakout that is the video "Nancy From Now On" it's a little easier to understand why former Fleet Foxes drummer Josh Tilman - aka Father John Misty - speaks of his search for music that "actually excites my joy-glands". This is a collection of some strange, titillating images -- e.g. the shave and haircut from what appears to be a motel hooker -- that seems to match up nicely with lyrics like "pour me another drink and punch me in the face...you can call me Nancy" (and that's just the opening line). Close your eyes, though, and hear a sweet folk/rock song that sounds like it might have escaped from some unreleased Nilsson album, Tilman's delectable honey-roasted vocals the fitting accompaniment to the warm and sunny laid back vibe.
