A year ago, folk singer Joshua Tillman released an album, Fear Fun, under the name "Father John Misty," and that is the name he has been using ever since. Tillman claimed his first album under the new name was a product of extensive mushroom-tripping and road-tripping. He has now released a video for the first song off Fear Fun, called "Funtimes In Babylon." The video looks like it was shot on a camera from sometime in the late 80s and features Misty walking around and dancing throughout a post-apocalyptic neighborhood. It's certainly weird, but also happy, in a strange way. Plus, he's got some interesting dance moves.

You can get Fear Fun on iTunes.
