FATHER JOHN MISTY / When You’re Smiling and Astride Me

I got into my van with enough mushrooms to choke a horse and started driving down the coast with nowhere to go. After a few weeks, I was writing a novel, which is where I finally found my narrative voice…

Da se ne radi o pričama iz Marylandskih šuma, nesretnim ljubavima bradatih drvosječa i nečemu što se zove konceptualni album, te da nam Tillman još kod prvog solo materijala nije jasno dočarao kako stvara:

I got into my van with enough mushrooms to choke a horse and started driving down the coast with nowhere to go. After a few weeks, I was writing a novel, which is where I finally found my narrative voice…. It was a while before that voice started manifesting in a musical way, but once I settled in the Laurel Canyon spider-shack where I’m living now, I spent months demoing all these weird-ass songs about weird-ass experiences almost in real-time, and kind of had this musical ‘Oh-there-I-am’ moment, identical to how I felt when I was writing the book.

mogli bi slobodno, uz melodije i jecaje ovotjednog powerplaya, zamisliti neku tekstualnu klapsku naricaljku o “nesritnoj jubavi pod kamenom, u drači ili iza škure”. Al to je ta univerzalna emocija koja nam kriglu u ruci smjelo diže u zrak. I nije nas sram što plačemo zbog jedne divne crne žene.

E da, J Tillman odnosno Father John Misty je isto toliko i Fleet Foxes.
