First of all, I want to dedicate this first post to the originater of both title and URL of this blog: Perfume Genius, the pseudonym of musician Mike Hadreas.
Although it took several months for his incredibly honest lyrics, frail voice and vulnurable, simple piano playing to cut and slash its way into my heart, his music is now an integrated part of my emotional life. Many a lonely night has his music brought me comfort, and helped me empty my eyes for tears and my mind for whatever brought me sorrow.
I’ll recommend listening to his second album Put Your Back N 2 It. Although his debut album may be just as touching, PYBN2I simply is more varied in both instrumentation and production, resulting in a more exciting and captivating experience.‒ “If i write a love song, its gonna have two dudes in it.”
