Father John Misty, formerly known as Fleet Foxes drummer Josh Tillman, can spin story and song with equal vibrancy. “I’m Writing a Novel” doesn’t really have any more to do with books than does “Paperback Writer,” but that one turned out a bona fide bestseller. This one’s pretty damn good, too. (For the story behind the song, watch Tillman’s studio performance at The Guardian newspaper here).
