A heady provocateur raised in Rockville, Josh Tillman is now best known as Father John Misty, a talented singer-songwriter whose wide-ranging interviews earn him as many headlines as his music releases. “Pure Comedy” is a 75-minute odyssey down the rabbit hole that is Tillman’s constantly churning mind, exploring topics like technology, fame, love, religion and much more. “Eventually, the dying man takes his final breath / But first checks his newsfeed to see what he’s about to miss,” he sings. The album is also nominated for best recording package. Listen to the album on Spotify here.
