Father John Misty Shares New Music Video “Pure Comedy” In Seemingly Perfect Timing

first_imgFather John Misty is a man of simple taste and robust opinion. Known for writing ballads relevant to the present moment, he announces his newest record Pure Comedy in seemingly perfect timing. The topics of choice are clearly defined in the title track, shared below, which explores societal trends, technological obsessions, popular dependencies, and the overall state of humanity across the human lifespan.He describes this new track as a lengthy dissection of “the comedy of man”. While the images in the video seem more specific than the lyrics of the song, he tells NPR, “There’s nothing political about ‘Pure Comedy.’ Unless that’s what the viewer wants, even with all the gratuitous footage of political figures. The video is only ‘about Trump’ in that the video is about human beings.”Images of Trump, Obama, Kanye West, and Pepe the Frog are all characters of the animated depiction. The song also appears to address relevant topics like big pharma, global warming, and natural disasters, as well as societal obsessions like religion, gluttony, and general foolishness.Pure Comedy comes out April 7, but you can listen to the title track below:Josh Tillman teamed up with Jonathon Wilson to produce the 75-minute record, which you can learn more about in the 25-minute documentary film below:You can also see the new album’s artwork, in GIF form, below:last_img read more

Lukaku brace seals Baggies win

first_img West Brom included Peter Odemwingie in their matchday 18 for the first time since his proposed move to QPR fell through amid acrimony last month, and he was predictably booed by the home fans when his name was announced over the public tannoy before kick-off and when he made his late entrance onto the pitch. The woodwork came to West Brom’s rescue after 25 minutes when Steven Fletcher cut in from the left and saw his low shot beat the dive of Ben Foster and hit the far post. West Brom responded and Youssouf Mulumbu headed wide from close range after attacking a probing Liam Ridgewell centre. However, Lukaku put the Baggies ahead from the penalty spot for his 11th goal of the season after Craig Gardner was adjudged to have handled a cross from Ridgewell. Sunderland started the second half on the offensive and Sessegnon had a shot cleared off the line by Mulumbu following a deep corner from Sebastian Larsson. But Lukaku continued to trouble the Sunderland defence his perseverance forced Titus Bramble into a mis-timed back pass and he then charged down Mignolet’s clearance which flew into the net. Sunderland hit back and in the 80th minute Sessegnon curled a shot past Foster and over the head of Ridgewell on the line to reduce the arrears. The on-loan Chelsea striker reached 12 goals for the season – all of which have come in the Barclays Premier League – firstly from the penalty spot and then when charging down a clearance from Sunderland goalkeeper Simon Mignolet. The Black Cats set up a tense finish through Stephane Sessegnon’s reply but Albion held on to keep up their challenge for a European place. Romelu Lukaku’s two goals lifted West Brom to the 40-point mark for the campaign as they overcame Sunderland 2-1 to register their first home win for two months.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
