Father John Misty’s New Song ‘The Memo’, And This Time It Is Not A Cover

By Alyson Camus | September 26, 2015

The first two paragraphs are direct critics of the current music industry and what can pass for art in general and I wonder why ironic and smart Tillman needed to remind his fans that boy bands were a fraud? Isn’t it a fact in Father John Misty world? He attacks modern art (‘the cultural low water mark’) and the internet (‘Narcissus would have had a field day if he could have got online’) but isn’t this pretty common place?

Lou Reed Told Father John Misty To Delete His Taylor Swift Covers?

By Alyson Camus | September 23, 2015

‘Down inside the blob I could see thousands of familiar faces and one of them was Lou Reed on a catwalk hand-cuffed to supermodels who had adopted babies handcuffed to them and Lou said, “Delete those tracks, don’t summon the dead, I am not your plaything. The collection of souls is an expensive pastime.” Then I woke up.’

It’s Getting Funny: Father John Misty Covering Ryan Adams’ Taylor Swift’s Covers

By Alyson Camus | September 22, 2015

‘My ongoing tribute to the classic Ryan Adams album ‘1989”, he writes below his cover of Welcome to New York’… ‘My reinterpretation of the classic Ryan Adams album ‘1989’’ he writes below Blank Space’. And there is a twist, it’s Father John Misty covering Ryan Adams covering Taylor Swift in the style of the Velvet Underground, my head is spinning with the idea, but Tillman’s take on Lou Reed is actually right on, and Ryan Adams’ input has been lost in translation.

So It Is Now Officially A Thing: Alt Rockers Covering 1989

By Iman Lababedi | September 22, 2015

Misty’s “Blank Space” works very well as a tribute to just about everybody, he sing songs into it, repeats what you don’t think he will, as an aggressive druggy wildness to his sing song, and then doesn’t change genders for that extra special swish of the hips.

‘The Night Josh Tillman Came To Our Apartment’, Father John Misty’s Strange New Video

By Alyson Camus | September 19, 2015

‘This video is partially inspired by the LeBron James quote “It is precisely the superficial differences between people who are otherwise alike that inform the hostilities between them.” Special thanks to my body double Tyler who I had to kiss no fewer than two dozen times and whose breath I can still smell in my mind’s eye’, Josh Tillman explained in a press release.

He jumped in the pit, making sure to shake everyone’s hands, signing vinyl, posing for selfies,… people were rushing at the front, I got crushed, and I wasn’t even really trying to fight, but when Tillman arrived at my level, I saw his blue eyes, his hand reaching mine for a frank handshake and I heard a ‘Thank you for coming’… wow, what was the myth he was trying to build?

Oldies But Goodies: From J. Tillman To Father John Misty

By Alyson Camus | April 15, 2015

Most of his songs are delivered in a slow pace, with a melancholic, solemn, almost severe tone, that was inspiring respect and a complete silence from the public who seemed to have been composed of the quietest people I had ever been with. He had more upbeat tunes, but, even there, the moaning and the mourning dominated the climate.

Father John Misty Speaks,… But Not To Us

By Alyson Camus | February 2, 2015

As Tillman surprisingly starts singing Celine Dion’s ‘That’s The Way It Is’ , the one that comes with the line ‘Love comes to those who believe it’, he declares ‘That’s one of the most fucked-up messages I received as a kid. If you’re not loved, it’s because you don’t ‘believe’ enough
