Yesterday, Father John Misty shared two new tracks from his upcoming record God's Favorite Customer, which is due out on June 1. "Disappointing Diamonds Are the Rarest of Them All," and "Just Dumb Enough to Try" are lush love songs, and they mark a slight change of direction for John Tillman. I'm looking forward to hearing the rest. This is all your good, standard music news.
In recent months, I have warmed up substantially to FJM (honestly it is mostly because he made a gag about flatearth.com that really fucking made me laugh). And I think in general potential skeptics have made a bit of a U-turn on this man who looks like what craft beer would if it were a person, because he can take a joke – the most important quality of all. He may be a human vegan leather sandal, but he's our human vegan leather sandal, and we at Noisey are fond of him, despite, um, things we may have said to the contrary.
It's a universal truth, however, that to love is to roast, so when FJM made a meme about the fact that his record basically leaked, due to accidentally being uploaded to iTunes for a short period yesterday, we kind of couldn't resist.
First of all I wanna say: congrats to FJM for owning it and having a laugh. Secondly I wanna say: his press picture is actually a pretty good one to meme, so I thought of a couple times I too have pulled this "what the fuck am I doing?" face. All good roasts begin with a self-roast, don't they?
I get it Josh, I do.
But now let's move onto the main event. It's all you baby:
I'm sorry to reopen old wounds but anyone who doesn't agree that this was the greatest dunk of all time doesn't have a sense of humor.
Where is your vinyl-buying public now Josh??? That's right, they're off buying some shit that has a hologram.
IDK man maybe this is a bit rogue but I just feel like FJM is the type of dude who would be presented with a stupidly hot hot sauce and eat it in front of a large group of people to assert his dominance despite it meaning he won't be able to like, speak for approx. three days afterwards.
SORRY I'M TRYING TO DELETE (NB: I have never won a Grammy and am a mere blogger so who is the real winner tbh).
