Perfume Genius - New queen on the scene.

"These are not nuanced tunes with genderless love interests, a la Morrissey. Too Bright is the gay indie rock equivalent of a swaggering Sylvester or Jobriath album. But when he started working on Too Bright, Hadreas says, "I had a lot of people telling me if I toned it down or dealt with more universal themes – which is code for being less gay – I would be more successful and have a wider fan base."
He will not elaborate on who those advisers were but says he had resolved to ignore them. And while he used to obsess only about the lyrics, he says, "I equally focused on the sound for the first time."





Love this album!

I was watching Hemlock Grove the other night and this song was used in one scene.

This one is about his mother who was molested as a child by a family member.

Michael Stipe opened for Patti Smith last night and he did a cover of Hood.
