I'm pretty sure that's Ron Jeremy at 3:05 in and again 20 seconds later.

That's apparently how Sub Pop recording artist Father John Misty (Joshua Tillman) rolls.

Check out this complete non-sequitur of a music video where scenes change as often as FJM's dance moves. (See our Sasquatch! Music Festival photos of the artist for more on that)

In fact, the only correlation between this video for "I'm Writing a Novel" and FJM is that it appears to be a pretty good represenation of what it's like to be inside his head 24 hours a day. They guy is a brilliant songwriter but he is also as quirky as they come. Or at least that's the persona he puts on. Videos like this, well, they just help solidify that notion.

Still, it's a great song.

And for something a little darker, check out French electro-pop group SALM's video for "Prophet 21" from their upcoming album Endless Stairs. And when I say it's a little darker, I mean someone gets curb-checked.
