UNDERRATED: Father John Misty

The name sounds like a chaplain serving not far from the 4077th, but in reality it's the musical nom de plume of ex-Fleet Foxes drummer Josh Tillman, who's behind a captivating new album, "Fear Fun." Led by Tillman's quavering voice, Father John Misty's lush and evocative mini-sermons recall '70s singer-songwriters with nods toward local landmarks like the Hollywood Forever Cemetery only sweetening the hazily sunny vibe.
