What happens when filmmaker Grant James collaborates with dynamic folk rock savant, Josh Tillman? A plane crash, evidently. Tillman’s alter ego, Father John Misty emerges from the wreckage dazed, well dressed and sardonically crooning, per yuse in the singer’s new video for Funtimes in Babylon off his most recent album, Fear Fun.
LAC decided to bugaboo Grant James, in lieu of observing our print deadlines. Here’s what the video’s co-director had to say:
