02/12 Album of the Month: Perfume Genius

Perfume Genius - Put Your Back N 2 It

It's been a while since I've really enjoyed an album like Put Your Back N 2 It. Blatantly sentimental, Perfume Genius' emotions are all on display in both the music and the words here. Lead singer Mike Hadreas' vocals tremble and shake ala Conor O'Berst, but the emotions feel so incredibly authentic and real. Production-wise, Perfume Genius has moved away from the hazy bedroom-pop of his previous album and given us something tangible and in-your-face to wrap our minds around. Fortunately, the project is well-suited for the new full-realized sound, allowing the emotive vocals to find a proper match in the bigger feel of the accompanying sounds. Check out the track "Dark Parts" from the album below:
