Father John Misty - "Mr. Tillman"

New MusictheneedledropComment

Father John Misty is back with a new single that cranks the self-reference and absurdity dials to 11 (implying he had them at only 10 before). Thankfully, it also happens to be catchy as hell and – surely to the relief of some listeners – more upbeat than much of what made up Pure Comedy. Oh, and the brief video component is spectacular. Truly this is a stock photography world; Father John Misty is just living in it. The man should start a meme channel.

"Mr. Tillman" will presumably appear on Father John Misty's fourth album, which is due out at some point this year.
