Father John Misty on Conan

On last night’s episode of Conan, the former Fleet Foxes percussionist J. Tillman, in his Father John Misty guise, acted as musical guest. In singing his Fear Fun single “Nancy From Now On,” Tillman took his whole debauched ’70s California studio-rock steez to its logical conclusion, enlisting a small army of backup musicians and radiating coked-out antipathy. It was pretty impressive! Check it out and download the song below.


Fear Fun is out now on Sub Pop.

  1. very nice.

  2. This might be blasphemy to some, but could Fear Fun be album of the year?

  3. for an indie guy, he’s definitely got a sense of savoir fair that other artists don’t have. his performances are all top shelf.

  4. “Tillman took his whole debauched ’70s California studio-rock steez to its logical conclusion, enlisting a small army of backup musicians and radiating coked-out antipathy. It was pretty impressive!”

    Tom… Nailed it.

  5. I see something like Boz Scaggs and his crew in the video for JoJo.

  6. Fear Fun was without a doubt one of the best albums of 2012, let alone one of the best records I’ve heard in a while PERIOD. Among all the bleep bloop electronic trendy dribble comes some good writing like this stuff. Tillmania has great taste and it shows in his general vibe and songs.
