Father John Misty

Recommended Posts

A co-worker of mine asked me if I had heard of Father John Misty and made me a mix CD with some of his songs on it and they grabbed me immediately. I downloaded his 2012 album "Fear Fun" (which can be found on iTunes) and I haven't really listened to anything else since. His lyrics are brilliant, profound, humorous and give homage to his resentment for his Christian upbringing. I can't do them justice via a description.

I suppose I have to place it in the realm of folk or alt-country music. Father John Misty is really Joshua "J." Tillman, drummer for Fleet Foxes, using a pseudonym. He grew up in Washington D.C. and is with Sub-Pop records, which, when you hear "Fear Fun", makes a lot of sense.

I'd recommend this to any fans of modern folk or independent music. Once again I have to acclaim the lyrics.
