Father John Misty Turns Kimmel Into His Own Personal Church

    It's possible that Father John Misty should have pursued the career of being a pastor. His ability to connect with an audience in a musical tone while still sounding conversational, is remarkable. He works the stage; he owns the pulpit. On his performance on the outdoor stage of The Late Show with Jimmy Kimmel, Father John Misty (formerly known as Josh Tillman, a.k.a his real name,) might have out-done himself. It's possible his performance of "The Ideal Husband" (perhaps inspired by Wilde's "An Ideal Husband?") might have sounded better than it does on the record. That's impressive. And really hard to do.

    He also performed "The Night Josh Tillman Came To Our Apartment." Misty softly addresses the audience, with side notes on the lyrics after he sings them. Folk music needs more ambitious acts like this. Music needs more ambitious acts like this. Just listen to his sermon; you'll want to be baptized too.
