Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings – Father John Misty


Recently stumbled across this song via a fellow follower, Dusty who was promoting his top ten songs of 2012.

I had never heard of this act or song before but I knew within ten seconds that I loved it. It’s moody and full of emotion with dark lyrics that tell a vivid story.

Jesus Christ, girl
What are people gonna think
When I show up to one of several funerals
I’ve attended for grandpa this week
With you
With me

Someone’s got to help me dig

It has a strong, steady beat with a metallic sounding guitar complemented with echoed vocals that drones which is actually very relaxing.

Alternative rock/indie genre is my favourite, with this band’s sound reminding me of a darker, rockier Cold War Kids.

An awesome discovery.
