J. Tillman recorded a string of solid solo albums over the last half-decade, but he gained a measure of fame by drumming with Fleet Foxes for four years. Tillman played his last Fleet Foxes show earlier this year, though, stepping away in order to pursue a new songwriting path as Father John Misty. FJM's debut album, the grand Fear Fun, came out on Sub Pop in May--perhaps you saw the video starring Parks & Recreation's Aubrey Plaza? (If not, it's embedded below.) Considering the album's vibe, it made perfect sense that Tillman chose The Flaming Lips' "Do You Realize??" for this installment of A.V. Undercover. Careful, you might get a little misty watching it.
