The latest from Perfume Genius is "Put Your Back N 2 It" and it's on Matador Records. Mike Hadreas is the genius in question and he's basically a solo piano guy who gets all emotional and carried away on these intense but ultimately winning tunes. More Elton John than Jack McMahon, Hadreas has this haunting voice going on during these slo mo rockers - no single song stands out - nothing sucks - it's all good as far as bummer music or music to hang yourself by - clearly, music to give your full attention. Like me, you may want the first one as well.
