Indie-folk rock savant Father John Misty, also known as singer-songwriter Josh Tillman, is back with his fourth studio album, titled God’s Favorite Customer
, released June 1 via Sub Pop Records – and with it comes a world tour, with a stop at the Hard Rock Live this weekend. Sure, he may be a bit overly sensitive and overly bearded for some folks – but, after checking our indie music snobbery at the door, we highly recommend tuning in and dropping out to his twisted melancholic riffs, padded by his soul-searching lyrics. In other words, we highly recommend the experience that is Misty’s set as much as we do his approach to a performance.
