There is a rapture on the lonely shore;
There is society, where none intrudes.
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more...

-Lord Byron

the swagger of Father John Misty

If it's not already, I suspect Father John Misty will soon become a household name to music lovers, whether you consider yourself a hipster or not.

The former Fleet Foxes drummer just has a sound, beat and swagger that is undeniably awesome.
Which is why I flew across the country to the great State of Pennsylvania and to the small town of Munhall to be seated in the beautiful Carnegie of Homestead Music Hall on the sixth of June, two thousand and fifteen.
Beanies, tattoes, fedoras and beards of all sizes and shapes crowded the hall. The lights went dim, Father John climbed on the top of the drum set, and started to sway and swagger...

Let the magic begin.

The lyrics haunted me long after I first heard them, and this song made me an instant fan of Father John Misty. I recall finding a place to see him in concert as soon as the song was done playing, and a few months later, flew across the country to see him.

More about that adventure later, but for now, here is that song performed live from when I saw him last weekend....
