The backdrop pinned onstage consisted of a nude Josh Tillman standing in a golden arch encapsulated by a rainbow, in space. And that is Father John Misty: Irreverent, free-spirited and probably, while not on stage, hanging out in his birthday suit.
This year proved to be another fantastic time for new releases. I'm proud to share my top 10 with the KDHX listeners on "Bittersweet Melody" this Wednesday, January 2, from 5-7 a.m. Central.
As of early December, these were my top 10 albums of 2012, but I've spent most of the month reviewing other worthy releases, so the countdown you'll hear on Rocket 88 on January 1, 2013 may be somewhat different.
I've always been the kind of person that doesn't like to limit myself to one genre of music, and this year was perfect for that.
