After sharing the track “Mr. Tillman” in February, Josh Tillman--otherwise known as Father John Misty--has offered up two more tracks from his upcoming fourth album God’s Favorite Customer, which is due out June 1. “Just Dumb Enough to Try” and “Disappointing Diamonds Are the Rarest of Them All” seem to indicate Tillman’s return to plumbing the depths of love more akin to the subject matter of his second album I Love You, Honeybear rather than the social commentary of his last album, Pure Comedy.
Musically, the tunes almost have a Beatles feel ,or more precise, a John Lennon feel a la Double Fantasy. The songs feature heavily on piano and bright acoustic guitar contrasted with overdriven electric guitar. You can listen to “Just Dumb Enough to Try” or scroll down to check out “Disappointing Diamonds Are the Rarest of Them All.”
