Father John Misty is J. Tillman (And This is His New Video)
We loved J. Tillman as the introspective singer-songwriter who tore our hearts to bits with arguably the prettiest voice in the Pacific Northwest. We loved J. Tillman as the wise-cracking drummer for the Fleet Foxes where he elevated the band’s already gorgeous harmonies. So its no surprise we love J. Tillman as Father John Misty, his new solo project, Tumblr and Twitter.
Sub Pop announced today they would be releasing Father John Misty’s debut album on May 1st and Entertainment Weekly debuted his new video for the project. Entertainment Weekly debuted it because a Aubrey Plaza from Parks and Recreation stars in the video, but they got to share a hell of a song too. “Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings” is stoned and sexy and sad. Pulsing with swagger and self-doubt, the feel of the song is summed up well in the line, “You came. I think.”
Father John Misty sounds like trouble. And we
like love it.
