    I went back and thought I'd watch the video again, too, I just could not do it. Maybe his theatrics are distracting me from his music. I'm sure its just my sensibilities, strip it all down to its essence.....

    I also re-read daveeliver's review and I feel guilty for not appreciating the band. Still doesn't convince me though either.

    I have to say it again, the reason I love this forum is because people share their tastes in music. Love that.

    But how 'bout Perfume Genius.....don't see any "likes" . What's that about?:eek::confused:

    I actually did enjoy that, and can really appreciate their hard work, but the lead singer is an enigma to me. The video showed some very, very interesting new contortions. That may be an explanation for some of his exhaustion. :stinkyfeet::stinkyfeet:

    Merry Christmas!!

    "the hope for us and what we do is creating something that is that is honest enough that it can open people up to themselves"

    "by showing my own vulnerability it allows people to open up themselves up to that"

    I will say @carmel59 as you watch this you begin to appreciate him more..........and see that his mannerisms are pretty real and part of the way he performs......i don't think anyone would accuse it of shtick

    this is great video!

    Now comes Father John Misty. He was featured on SNL last night. I'm not as sophisticated as some of you, but did I hear echoes of Future Islands in his performance?

    I don't think so, Future Islands doesn't make an echo, :p, but what do I know, I have no sophistication.o_O

    What about you @davidcotyalex, hear any echoes?

    seriously though, I can listen to Father John Misty.........for a short while.
