Father John Misty – ‘Pure Comedy’ (album review)

Since 2012, J. Tillman, otherwise known as Father John Misty, has been gradually (and effortlessly) rising in the ranks of the indie scene. Over the course of his two previous records, Misty has managed to not only act as a kind of jester to the serious and often pretentious nature of the industry, but also maintaining a high level of […]

A Look Back at Newport Folk Fest ’16

A Look Back at Newport Folk Fest ’16

Every festival has a signature moment. It could be that one performance people will talk about for weeks after. It might be an expected collaboration that is recorded on every other attendee’s cellphone. Maybe it is a band digging deep into its catalogue to play a song not heard in years. Each Newport Folk Festival does not have a signature moment. […]

Field Medic – “not a normal boy” (video premiere)

Joshua Tillman – a.k.a. Father John Misty – could be credited for reinventing indie folk music with his playful, witty, and sometimes outlandish lyrics. His “oddball folk” opened up doors for a number of new singer-songwriters, like San Francisco resident Kevin Patrick. Under his pseudonym Field Medic, Patrick is creating atypical folk. It’s not music that is heartwrenching or will […]

While we could have rolled up all those singles into one mammoth playlist, that would have meant a playlist of nearly 1,500 songs, not to […]

Father John Misty – I Love You, Honeybear

Father John Misty – I Love You, Honeybear

Much has been written of Josh Tillman’s reinvention of himself under the moniker Father John Misty. The alter-ego Father John Misty is part performance artist, part satirist, part rock star, part comedian, part poet; and it all adds up to an absolutely amazing artist. On his second album, I Love You, Honeybear, under the Father John Misty name, Tillman strings together beautiful, funny, heartbreaking, and […]
