Watch Father John Misty Perform 'Ballad Of The Dying Man' Live In The Studio Armed with Pure Comedy's biting cultural observations, Josh Tillman stopped by KCRW's studios for a surprisingly tender performance.

Father John Misty, 'Ballad Of The Dying Man' (Live)


Josh Tillman, a.k.a. Father John Misty, stopped by our studio the day he released his latest album, Pure Comedy, to play a stripped-down set of songs. With his lyrics pushed to the forefront, Tillman's keen cultural observations were on full display. It was a deeply moving set, including our current favorite, "Ballad Of The Dying Man."
