Pure Comedy

by Father John Misty

Released on Bella Union

"Although Father John Misty is occasionally comical on his new record, don't be fooled by its title - Pure Comedy alludes to a theme of bemusement, rather than amusement. Threaded through these indie folk ballads is a saga about our existence in the present day, where ironies and juxtapositions are explored with Josh Tillman's omniscient and playful lyrics. It is often bleak, occasionally droll, but always brilliant."
