Father John Misty - Pure Comedy
New album is incredible. His lyrics are like poetry. I'm a little conflicted; I was a fan of his last album but after his 20 minute rant at a festival where he didn't play and just ranted and left the stage, I was done with him. I don't like that stuff. People pay money and take time to see you and you don't play is pretty douche. I sold my albums and said screw this guy. But, I heard the first single Pure Comedy and was hooked again (check out his SNL performance of the song). Bought the new album, gave it a spin and it is beautiful in parts and the lyrics are so sharp, funny, melancholy, focused. True artist. I can only really compare him in tone only, to Tom Waits maybe. Love to hear thoughts/opinions (and yes, he can come off as pretentious and self involved but he kind of undercuts that on the album).
