Father John Misty is the musical persona of Josh Tillman, who has been recording and releasing solo albums since 2003 (as J Tillman) and who recently departed the Fleet Foxes after playing drums since 2008. Tilmman’s debut as Father John Misty – Fear Fun – was recently released on Sub Pop Records. The record was produced by Jonathan Wilson (himself a singular singer-songwriter) and has musical touchstones on it that may bring to mind George Harrison’s classic All Things Must Pass and Harry Nilsson. Download the song “Nancy From Now On” from Tillman’s Fear Fun below. Father John Misty is playing this Thursday evening as part of WXPN’s Non-Commvention along with War On Drugs, Polica, and Beth Orton. The complete schedule of live broadcasts is here.
