KCRW Presents: Father John Misty

May 30, 2012On his way into the studio for a live set, former Fleet Foxes drummer J. 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 "Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings" on KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic.

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.
