Tashaki Miyaki
L.A. duo Tashaki Miyaki has released a cover of Father John Misty‘s “Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings.” The girl-guy group takes Josh Tillman’s Americana thumper, from this month’s Fear Fun, keeps the lyrics, trades the male singer for a slouching female vocal and adds some lo-fi pop fog. If you play the tracks simultaneously, you can hear that the Tashaki Miyaki version lags just a hair behind the beat of the original, even though it seems much more delayed. Tempo-wise, Father John Misty is warmed up Log Cabin, while this cover moves as sweetly and slowly as molasses on a cold day.
