Father John Misty – This is Sally Hatchet

A rather difficult tune, but no less splendid for its unusual time / chord changes.  There’s definitely a Beatles influence (particularly Lennon), albeit through a dark prism while the strings weave a smoky web throughout.  The croonsome vocals really impress.  Sophisticated lyrically and musically.

39/43
