    WTF Podcast - FATHER JOHN MISTY

    2018

    Father John Misty talking about his transition from his practice as J Tillman, which was a more typical singer-songwriter based practice with "impressionistic," aesthetically authentic lyrics and sound world. "So the thing about listening to it for the first time… I’m well accustomed to the way that peoples eyes glaze over when they see a white guy with an acoustic guitar. 9 times out of 10 you know what you’re in for, you’re gonna get something that’s sentimental, confessional, the assumption is that its innately personal by virtue of the fact that its one guy with a song that he writes."

    2017

    George Harrison talks about how difficult it would be to have performed Tomorrow Never Knows on stage, emphasising how there is less 'liveness' in this recording than in their earlier work. This is used in the context of defining the 'highly produced' as a concept.

    Frith, S.

    Performing Rites

    2002 - Oxford university press - Oxford

    Talks about 'the grain of the voice,' and how we perceive the voice and the messages that it delivers. This has relevance to my argument as it discusses how in popular music singers are viewed as doing something "personally expressive," which links to the kinds of things I'm using to define authenticity, as something direct and emotionally honest.

    Artists and Morality: Toward an Ethics of Art

    1977 - Leonardo

    "To judge the honesty of artists is to consider their candor and openness in treating others without dissembling or deceit" - this is a really important point relating to emotional honesty - not just telling the truth about ones feelings, but telling the whole truth, which is a much more difficult thing, and probably one that is done less - although of course it is impossible to tell.

    I Love You, Honeybear

    2015 - Sub Pop - Los Angeles

    "A concept album about a guy named Josh Tillman," touted as a very authentic album because of the fact that Josh Tillman writes the way as he supposedly speaks, and pours that into the container of the persona of Father John Misty. The concept behind the album is essentially a 'warts and all' view of his marriage.

    Appel, N.

    The singer-songwriter disposition

    2017 - Bloomsbury - London

    Discusses a number of important issues for the singer-songwriter - the need to be "poetic, personal, confessional, unmediated" and also the importance of autership to the perception of the singer-songwriter as being authentic, as well as discussing the soundworld of the singer-songwriter and the role of "sincerity, as opposed to irony or cynicism," which could be applied interestingly in opposition to the example of Father John Misty.

  • Chapter of an ed. book

    Apolloni, A.

    Vocal authorship: Marianne Fauthfull and "Sister Morphine"

    2017 - Bloomsbury - London

    Discusses 'vocal authorship,' and how songs can become 'about' personal experience even when written by someone else or at a different time. This could be relevant to the discussion about Skeleton Tree, how many of the songs were written before Arthur Cave's death yet still the album is wrapped up in meanings of grief as the songs were recorded during Nick Cave's grieving. This challenges the relationship between emotional honesty and the cold, hard facts of a situation.

    Gender, race, and the ma(s)king of 'Joni Mitchell'

    2016 - Cambridge University Press - Cambridge

    Joni Mitchell is one of the most prominent singer-songwriters, often conceived of as writing personally, confessionally etc. This chapter discusses her use of persona, specifically that of 'Claude'. As my research has developed, this has probably lost relevance to my final arguments and so may not be used in the final essay.

    Wood, C.

    None the Wiser

    2013 - R.U.F Records

    One of the singer-songwriters I most revere, Chris Wood inherits the traditions of English folk music well and combines them with sharp criticisms of Cameron's Britain. In the early stage of my research, when I was thinking more generally about singer-songwriters and folk music, this album was one I was thinking about as being particularly innovative. Since then, my research has moved slightly away from that direction and so it perhaps is less relevant.
