Watch: Father John Misty Perform On Jimmy Kimmel

    Former Fleet Fox Josh Tillman took the stage at Jimmy Kimmel Live to play two tracks from the Father John Misty debut album Fear Fun—a fitting name for a record about the strange danger and magnetism of Los Angeles.

    Watch Tillman perform the standout track “Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings” (now famous for the video in which Aubrey Plaza loses her shit at a funeral) followed by a lively rendition of “I’m Writing A Novel.”

    You’ll come for the music, but you’ll stay for the dance moves (a style that falls somewhere between Mick Jagger and Hunter S. Thompson). Say what you will about the dissolution of Fleet Foxes, I’m glad Tillman got out from behind that drum kit to release all that pent-up energy, wry humor and showmanship.

    Father John Misty is touring through the remainder of 2013. It’s a live experience well-worth checking out. You can also watch Tillman discuss his musical influences here
