PITCHFORK “LEARNING” PERFUME GENIUS IN ALBUM REVIEW

Pitchfork
If you haven’t heard Seattle’s Perfume Genius’ hit “Mr. Peterson” off his album, Learning, get on it! The ballad has garnered loads of attention and was featured as a best track on Pitchfork. Now the hipster must-read has issued an entire album review for Learning. “The songs on Hadreas’ [Perfume Genius’] full-length debut are eviscerating and naked, with heartbreaking sentiments and bruised characterizations delivered in a voice that ranges from an ethereal croon to a slightly cracked warble,” the article elucidates. The review feels a lot like the album: gentle, soothing, sweet and somehow raw with emotion. Definitely check out the article at the above link, and be sure to give a listen to Learning.
