Josh Tillman, known by his stage name Father John Misty, released his fifth album Chloë and the Next 20th Century this April. Chloë and the Next 20th Century feels like an old movie, with jazz sounds and orchestras accompanying Tillman. Though his sound differs from previous albums, Tillman continues his trend of singing love songs with the eleven songs on Chloë. What gives Tillman an edge compared to other artists are his perfectly pretentious and sarcastic lyrics. Instead of creating concept albums, Tillman tells individual stories with every song. Though each song is an individual snippet of his life, Chloë sounds cohesive and elegant. Father John Misty is performing at The Anthem on September 20th. Unlike many concerts at the venue, the concert will have seating. This will make for an intimate experience where each member of the audience will be able to sit back and take in Tillman’s impressive songwriting along with the stunning composition of his songs.
