*Blue marks Tillman's soft falsetto.
*Underlines mark faint or otherwise obscured notes in the song mix.


Here we have Joshua/Josh/ J. Tillman, or his most recent moniker, Father John Misty. I first learned about this guy when I discovered Fleet Foxes, and he does harmony vocals in much of their live material. He's also been releasing some solo material with the name Father John Misty. His most recent album, I Love You, Honeybear, was just released this year. I thought I could finally start a thread for him because of his touring, and also because of all the covers he's been doing lately.

He also has several albums he made before Fleet Foxes, which I'll try to get a hold of.

Awesome performance. I think there's some falsetto reaching C5.

Black F#4  @ 1:26 on the song "Strange Encounter"

Nice work to whoever found the G4s in the harmonies of Chatteau Lobby #4, they are super hard to hear.

SHIT. We may have a problem here. Those harmonies by the other guy sound almost identical to the studio.
