Father John Misty “I Went to the Store One Day” in a Paris cafe for La Blogothèque
Accompanied by quiet French conversations from passer-bys, Josh Tillman of Father John Misty recently recorded a Take Away Show with La Blogothèque in Paris. The singer performed “I Went to the Store One Day” from his new album I Love You, Honeybear. It was a romantic setting in the candlelit Parisian cafe and the opening scene features snapshots of historical paintings backed by the dramatic strums of Tillman’s guitar.
Supported by a mandolin solo, accordion and violin player, the song set a mesmerizing ambiance in the Paris cafe. The videography pans over each musician, giving the performance an intimate and warm feeling. If you’ve ever seen Father John Misty perform, (like his recent sold-out Free at Noon), you know that his stage presence is enthusiastic and engaging as he works and messes with with the crowd. This session also captures his emotional side, as it pans over Tillman and showcases his facial expressions while strumming a folky chord progression.
Father John Misty’s upcoming album, I Love You, Honeybear, is out today through Sub Pop Records. The band plays a sold-out show at Union Transfer on April Fools Day with fuzz rocker King Tuff. Check out the Take Away Show session below.
