Order up for Seattle! “Latte sipping jams” from Father John Misty! Not just for the barista crowd, though, Josh Tillman (or J. Tillman as we used to know him) has reinvented, but also rediscovered, his persona in his energetic new Sub Pop released project. Less wandering hilltop priest, as his moniker suggests, and more Laurel Canyon boho-chic, Father John Misty combines a bit of Fleet Fox folkiness with a heavy dose of Stonesy swagger and self-conscious lyrics that are sometimes dark, often humorous, occasionally touching, and alternately self-deprecating and boastful. It sounds like a lot to take in, but his hip-shaking, finger-wagging stage presence is instantly engaging. Just sit back, take a sip and watch:
