By Uncle Blurt
Here at the Blurt pirate ship (we’re moored just off the shore of Ireland, incidentally) we have a hard time reaching a consensus about Father John Misty; Joshua Tillman’s music is intermittently brilliant, occasionally self indulgent, and moderately interesting (if a bit ’70s soft-rock derivative). On my part, I’m on the fence – and I detest his latest bathtub fart, Pure Comedy, which came out last week via Sub Pop. (Nice colored vinyl for the 2LP set, though.)
But fans will dig this show posted for free MP3 download at the Big O zine recently.
Check out a couple of album tracks, performed acoustically, and interview segments from the FM broadcast. The full tracklisting is below.
