The Fashionably Late Top 50 of 2015: Father John Misty

I am forever running late. While it may not be a part of my charm, I would refer you to the old saying about better late than never. In any case, after probably way too much thought, I finally settled upon my favorite 50 records from the year that was 2015. I'm also mixing it up a little this year, y'all. Instead of ranking every record, I'm giving you my picks in alphabetical order, saving my number one, very favorite record of the year for last. So sit back, relax, and refresh your memory of last year's best with a group of records that I hope will tickle your fancy.

Who: Father John Misty

What: I Love You Honeybear

When: February 2015

Where: Sub Pop

Why: Everyone's favorite indie lounge troubadour Father John Misty returned last year with another collection of divinity. Witty as ever and with honey voice still delicious, our hero has provided us with an album of songs that are impeccably glossy and instantly addictive (though slightly less rambunctious). All filled with the wry, sly delivery that made us fall for him in the first place.  

My very favorite jam: "Strange Encounter"
