"Mike Hadreas, also known as Perfume Genius is a singer/songwriter from Seattle, Washington, US. Perfume Genius began when he moved from New York to his mother’s home in Everett, WA. In these relatively isolated conditions, Hadreas felt a compulsion to make music and began composing fragile yet brutally honest songs on the piano. By 2008 he had set up a MySpace page and began offering his music there, along with similarly spare and evocative homemade music videos. Turnstile released the single Mr. Peterson — the tale of a suicidal, pedophile high-school teacher — in 2009. Perfume Genius’ full-length debut, Learning, which presented its tracks in the order in which they were recorded, arrived and released on June 21, 2010."

 

New album Too Bright out September 23!

Don't remember that being the point of the entertainment section, though...?

Ditto!

 

 

"Put Ur Back N 2 It" is such an amazing & heartbreaking album (especially when you know the story behind it), EVERYONE should listen to it at least once.

My favourite song is "Hood" - You would never call me baby / If you knew me truly / Oh but I waited so long for your love   :crying2:

OMG a fan prior to this thread, how cool! Yes, I think "Hood" is my favorite as well, it's just too short. Case with most of his songs--like he's getting too emotional so he has to make every song 2 minutes or something :P He has so much sadness even in his love songs. I swear, "Dark Parts" has brought me to tears before. I think the second album is the best, have you heard Learning?

I've cried a couple of times while listening to that album, I'm not even ashamed to admit it. Have you ever seen him live? I'm not gonna lie, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't make it through one of his live shows without crying. His music is just so intimate, and sad, and delicate...

 

Yeah, I've heard it. I prefer the second one as well, but Learning was really haunting too (although so, so short!). I only listened to it after Put Ur Back N 2 It though - I was so mindblown with it, it was hard to top that!

I love him, been listening to him for years now...
I think he needs to polish his sound a little bit, but he's amazing...
The lyrics really show how he has crossed ways with hurt...

I hope not, to be honest... I think it really adds to that fragile and intimate (almost diary-like) quality of his music.

Omg, thank you for making this topic! I just found out about him and I really like his music (it almost seems that every artist you listen I also like lol please send me a list with all the flawless artists you listen to, I really need new music from new artists). I just downloaded his 2010 album 'Learning' and 2012 album 'Put Your Back N 2 It'. Mr Peterson one hell of a good song :hair:
