Our Father presents brand new mesmerizing 3rd issue ‘Pure Comedy’

With a flair à la Nick Cave, Joshua Tillman - aka Father John Misty – waltzes through a subversive world full of orchestral indie-pop & rock. Or: Sufjan Stevens in an enduring courtship dance with Elliott Smith, Randy Newman, John Grant and Brian Wilson bathed in profusely romantic and ambiguous lyrics full of irony and sarcasm.

Fleet Foxes, Arcade Fire, Band of Horses, Belle & Sebastian, Bill Callahan, Bon Iver, Bonnie Price Billy, Animal Collective, Devendra Banhart, Wilco,…

‘Gouden countrysoul. Bekeert u allen tot Onze Father, voor het te laat is.’ (Focus Knack)

Father John Misty appeared in AB respectively as J. Tillman (’08), as drummer of Fleet Foxes (’08) and Father John Misty (’15)

KO: ‘Zijn performance op Pukkelpop ’15 laveerde tussen bevreemdend, pakkend en afstotend. But, I’ll keep coming back’.

‘Pure Comedy’, the title of his latest album. And also the fact that a band he is very friendly with will appear in AB barely a week later.

This concert is a part of the Autumn Falls festival.

Le son était incroyablement bon, le père John m'a mystifié! Merci, un superbe concert!Allez le voir, l'interprétation sur scène est splendide!
Super performer - droge humor in combinatie met queenachtige rockposes en een geweldige band erachter - beste concert dit jaar!

Dit was een briljant concert. J. Tilman heeft een heel goede stem. De sound van de band had wat weg van seventies groepen zoals The Eagles. Weids, mooi. Soms horde ik ook een beetje Elton John ( de goeie Elton John van de seventies ) en qua stem soms the Bee Gees. Ja, ik zie J. Tilman nog in een Bee Gees covergroep zingen. Daarvoor heeft hij de stem, de zelfrelativering en de humor. Hij is één van de grappigste mensen in de muziekwereld.
This was a transcedent Concert experience. Expansive and incredibly lyrical musical expression fronted by an incredibly charasmatic and passonate performer. A deeply Personal, Soulful compendium of songs. Up there with Wilco, as one of the most memorable concerts of the past year or more. Well Done to get him!
One of the best concerts I've been to this year!
Father John Misty was geweldig, bezwerend, heerlijk cynisch en sarcastisch. De interactie met het publiek, het was echt super! De afsluiter van de show was het absolute hoogtepunt van de avond. Mooie visuals, goed geluid en een machtige Josh Tillman die bijzonder goed bij stem is live.
I'm sure it was a great concert. But I didn't get to see it. I live in the Belgian furthest place from Brussels. The mix between highway works, bad signing for works and bad signing on the highway ground, wintery weather and bad visibility prevented me from attending the concert. Next time.
