Video: Father John Mistry's early-morning stroll through the East Village

The video for Father John Misty's song "God's Favorite Customer" came out today... it's the title track from his new album, out now on Sub Pop and Bella Union.

And the video is set entirely in the East Village, with a forlorn-looking Misty (aka Josh Tillman) slowly making his way from Seventh Street and Avenue A to Third Street and the Bowery.

If you want some analysis of the song and video, directed by his wife Emma Elizabeth Tillman, then you can head over to Stereogum.

H/T Jon!

This is the one of the most boring songs in music creation. The video is like "Waiting on a friend" if Mick had sleep apnea. But what do I know, I'm not a music critic's darling.

This and snail mail, jesus motherfuckin' christ, who is going to write the rebel songs for social justice and will there ever be any again?

Sonic Youth's Daydream Nation will be 30 in a few months. Just throwin' that in.
