Our favourite sardonic son Josh Tillman, better known as Father John Misty, follows up last year’s Pure Comedy with God’s Favorite Customer – a collection of songs that asks the big questions but not without a healthy dose of Tillman’s wit.
Date Night is undeniably fun, while the wonderfully tongue-in-cheek Mr. Tillman will likely have you in hysterics. On the other hand, Please Don’t Die and Just Dumb Enough To Try reveal a markedly serious Tillman, showing that there are many facets to his character. Ultimately, the album is Tillman at his most sincere, proof that behind what might be considered a contrived act to some is a human being with the capacity to express real emotions.
God’s Favorite Customer is out June 1 via Sub Pop.
