Former Fleet Foxes drummer J. Tillman has a new solo project by the name Father John MIsty. He just released an NSFW video that my depraved little heart loves. You’ve got this beautiful, soft and slightly high-pitched man’s voice singing about being flogged by a dominatrix as if he were still just hanging out with some long-haired dudes on the grassy knoll singing about the weather. It’s Bee Gees meets a role reversal in The Secretary. BTW, if you are a fan of dark humor and, just as an example, know and celebrate the legend that was Leigh Bowery, you should really follow Tillman’s Tumblr too – I have a feeling shit’s gonna get really weird.
Here’s a stream and download of another song, “Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings”, from his full length debut, Fear Fun, out May 1st.
