… doing some very interesting things
Its all a far cry from where he’s come. I love it when an artist that you adore does something different and it comes off.
I am very excited for a new album. ‘Put your back in 2 it’ is still on constant rotation in Casa Story though it does get banned from time to time as it makes me so tearful still!

I know you’ve been into him for a while, but he’s never quite done it for me.
And then last night, I heard a song that stopped me in my tracks. I was like, I HAVE to know who this is.
It was Queen by Perfume Genius.
Needless to say I’m on board now. When’s the album dropping, bro?
By the way, both of these massively remind me of what Annie Clark’s doing of late with St Vincent. You really should listen to her last album. It’s astonishingly good.
Ive been listening Brother David. I really like the new album. It sparkles … But I keep forgetting about it! There’s something there not quite fitting but can’t work out what. When I go back to it I love it …. Poof! Then I forget it. Then I love it again etc etc
Glad your liking this new stuff. I thought you would. It has a bit of Bowie in there …. not sure which bit or which era but there’s something there. I’ll check on the album as I’m not sure.
Yeah, there’s a lot of Berlin era Bowie in there. What’s not to like?
I have honestly never heard of this dude. Best give it a whirl!
He’s done two albums of very stripped back, heart wrenching little songs … and then expanded his world to sound like this. I wrote about his second album a year and a bit ago … the one that makes me cry nearly every time I listen to it!

Who’s up for a brothers’ posse?
I’d love to …. but I think I will have a little boy then
Ah, yes. That!
The album’s out now. Just ordered.
Oh my. Bought the album. LOVE the album. What a piece of work. Thx for the recommend Brother J, much appreciated.
Quick work Brother. I’ve ordered the CD so have to wait. Hang on, its on Spotify. Woop de woop
This is a brilliant album. I love him.
I think this is going to create a great introduction to him for those that may have found his last two albums a bit raw.
I’m loving the album. ‘fool’ is my stand out track so far, but have only been listening for the last day.
Interesting, I would have thought Put Your Back N 2 It was the most accessible in a singer-song-writer type way but maybe I am swayed by my adoration for that album!
I literally love him in a totally gay way
Man, he’s good.
