Perfume Genius: Put Your Back N 2 It
Buy! - (Matador)
The second album of atmospheric indie-pop from Seattle’s Mike Hadreas (aka Perfume Genius) is more fully produced than his impressive lo-fi debut, though the arrangements are nearly as skeletal, featuring stately piano and haunting synths along with occasional guitars, pedal steel and other instrumentation to accompany his tremulous vocals. And while the songs cover some of the same dark subject matter as the debut (abuse, addiction), they also contain much more hope and belief in the power of love, and that’s echoed by the hymn-like structures of Hadreas’s songs. 2/17/2012 - Don Yates
