Late last year Father John Misty served up a huge helping of his sardonic, postmodern take on American society by performing “Bored In The USA” on Letterman, which definitely set the tone for his sophomore album, I Love You Honeybear. Since the album comes out next week, Josh Tillman — the brains behind FJM — has been popping up all over the place to preview tracks from the record. Today, New York radio station WFUV posted three live performances of songs from the album: “Chateau Lobby #4 (In C For Two Virgins),” “Strange Encounter,” and “Nothing Good Ever Happens At The Goddamn Thirsty Crow.” You can watch them below, and if you’re really into Tillman’s crackpot-yet-kinda-spot-on philosophizing, check out the extensive bio and album liner notes he penned over at Sub Pop.
