Father John Misty (aka Josh Tillman) is one of the most unique singers, songwriters and musicians around these days.

People who say there isn't any good music around these days just aren't paying any attention (either than or they just hate this stuff, who knows).

Here he is live with a very large band.

I got to about the 1 min mark, not my cup o tea.

His voice grates on my nerves.

I didn't like it at all. Unique for sure, though.

And sweet dance moves at 1:23=1:27.

Very good voice IMO but the lyrical content is banal and the vocal/lyric syntax is quirky enough that I stopped listening.

His stage name seems appropriate for such preachy lyrics, I guess...maybe I am too judgemental after 90 seconds of listening...get offa my lawn!!

I agree with the OP

very enjoyable with literate and often humorous lyrics.

He is good value and well worth looking into.

He's one of those guys that really want to like, but there's something about him that just bugs me and I don't enjoy listening to him.

To me, he comes off as a bit pretentious and almost smarmy. It's like he's trying just a little too hard to be cool. The "hipster" comments apply.

And don't you start with that, "oh, you don't like music like I do" nonsense, Mr. 5Strats (or however many you're up to, now).
(;^)

I like a LOT of stuff.
Just not THIS stuff.

MLC - What kind of "stuff"? Seriously, maybe you can turn me onto something cool.

Sincerely,
