Father John Misty
Aka Josh Tillman, former drummer with Fleet Foxes. His music consists of such disparate elements as Waylon Jennings, Harry Nilsson, Arthur Russell and Roy Orbison. Lyrically, his absurdist fever dreams of pain and pleasure elicit, in equal measures, the blunt descriptive power of Bukowski or Braughtigan, the hedonistic philosophy of Oscar Wilde and the dried-out wit of Loudon Wainwright III.

He has built up a dedicated international following and is well established for his genre-crossing work blending classical, pop and ambient/electronica influences to a unique musical language. He also scored a BAFTA award winning soundtrack for ITV's popular drama series 'Broadchurch'.

KOKOKO! is an explosive new band with an alternative sound crafted in Kinshasa, DRC, made up of local artists, instrument inventors and prolific French producer débruit. The project came about when production company La Belle Kinoise (Staff Benda Bilili, Jupiter’s Dance), invited débruit to Kinshasa for a month-long residency in 2016 to collaborate with the innovative artists they were documenting across the emerging contemporary art scene. After building a recording studio together out of mattresses, wood they could find and the rest of a broken ping pong table, the Congolese musicians and the itinerant Breton producer began exploring each other’s ideas, sounds, and cultural influences. By the end of a month of working intensely in their new studio, exploring Kinshasa by night, and sleeping whenever there was a spare moment, they had the bones of a debut album and KOKOKO! was born.
