KCRW Presents: Father John Misty

Father John Misty's J. Tillman performs on KCRW's "Morning Becomes Eclectic." (KCRW)

On his way into the studio, former Fleet Foxes drummer J. Tillman grabbed a photo of David Lynch off the walls — a fitting gesture to his surreal musical alter ego. Here, he performs on KCRW.

In recent years, J. Tillman has moved from Seattle to Los Angeles, quit his gig as the drummer of Fleet Foxes and abandoned his real name, all to become Father John Misty. On his way into KCRW's studio for a live set, Tillman grabbed a photo of David Lynch off the walls in the hallway — a fitting gesture to his surreal musical alter ego. Here, he shimmies his way through a dedication of sorts to an L.A. landmark titled "Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings." Click here to watch the full session on KCRW.com.
