I’m a music journalism student from the north of England. I’ve had a strong passion for music for as long as I can remember, I love most types of music but alternative music has always been my favourite.

Album of the Year, Father John Misty – Pure Comedy

Album of the Year, Father John Misty – Pure Comedy On his third album, Father John Misty (Josh Tillman) tackles the absurd normality of life in the modern day with a winning combination of philosophy and satire. ‘Pure Comedy’ is certainly Father John Misty’s most ambitious and experimental album to date, with full orchestras and more electronic sounds and samples scattered throughout, yet the album still retains the feel of Misty’s signature folk sound as well as the former Fleet Foxes drummer’s loveable charisma and arguably, arrogance.
