imgres-1 Father John Misty’s songwriting is sublime. His voice and guitar playing are fantastic. He dances like a stripper and he’s funny as hell between songs. A lot of musicians have great banter, but I’d argue he’s the funniest touring musician I’ve ever seen. Here’s a link to a Pitchfork interview he did last year. It’s a cool format where the writer gives FJM a bunch of scenarios and he has to answer what music he’d want to listen to in that moment. He tells a bunch of random stories, including one about walking through a snowy farmland in a Pizza Hut uniform, listening to Leon Russell. Here he is, not being particularly funny, but bleeding profusely and cavorting with models.
