New Father John Misty video: Mr. Tillman

Video: Father John Misty – “Mr. Tillman” From God’s Favorite Customer, out June 1 on Sub Pop.

New Father John Misty video: Leaving LA

Video: Father John Misty – “Leaving LA” From Pure Comedy, out now on Sub Pop. I know I know I know, a thirteen-minute hymn to your own hyper-awareness (a “10 verse chorus-less diatribe”) is self-indulgent horseshit. It’s impossible to argue with that. And yet… Try to forget for a sec what a bloated self-righteous asshole … Continue reading New Father John Misty video: Leaving LA

New Father John Misty video: Total Entertainment Forever

Video: Father John Misty – “Total Entertainment Forever” If you’ve been a bit concerned that Papa John Murphy has abandoned his sense of humor, this new video might cheer you up. It’s pretty funny.

New Father John Misty video: Pure Comedy

Video: Father John Misty – “Pure Comedy” Another feel good party anthem from everybody’s favorite optimist, FJM.

Dumb new Father John Misty ditty: This Is America

YouTube: Father John Misty – “This Is America” I don’t watch whatever show this video is promoting, but the song is kinda funny. Let’s hope Josh Tillman gets back to work on the third FJM LP. He gave us more of a hint of what that might actually sound like (maybe?) when he released “Real … Continue reading Dumb new Father John Misty ditty: This Is America
