As a candle fiend this is sending me nn.
He’s like no one else. And yet so fucking amazing.
Out of everyone I listen to, he's probably closest to Sufjan Stevens (kii).
He's everything T***e S***n wishes he was.
NEVAHHHHHHHHHH utter this peasant’s name in this thread when comparing to THIS QUEEN.
Actually, lemme edit. Ddddd.
Honestly, I don’t see that comparison. I mean I don’t see Sufjan doing something like, say, Grid or Longpig
If there’s any comparison to be made, his ballads with piano (and quieter moments on his albums) are very Tori/Fiona inspired. SORTA.
I thought that too, but Age of Adz sis. Plus Perfume Genius' early stuff is very sad gay Sufjan. He's the closest I can think of at least.
I haven’t heard Age of ADZ. AKSSJDJFDDDD
I do think Sufjan and Tori & Fiona are a good touch points for his work but there is something more overtly queer about Perfume Genius (both lyrically and musically). I think a good chunk of that comes down to his vocals which are less "pretty" than what Sufjan can deliver. "Wreath" on his last album (also my favorite of his albums so far) was literally a gay boy who grew up loving Kate Bush writes and performs his own Kate Bush song. But really you should just give him a listen and fall in love! Every album is it's own piece but all of them fit together so well
Uh if we're talking influences the last album especially felt very in the vein of To Bring You My Love
King of abs
NEXT WEEK ALREADY???????
I guess I'm crying on the 15th then.
I can't WAIT for this album. I think it's shaping up to be his best yet. Both Describe & On The Floor are 10/10.
This album will end me.
In two/three days depending on your country’s time zone. Can’t believe he didn’t delay it. I hope my vinyl, shirt and CD come soon!
We're getting 11 new Perfume Genius songs in 2 days. I'm excited
On The Floor is immaculate.
Just got an email that my order has been shipped. It’s gonna take at least two weeks or more due to you know who but I’m so excited to get the physicals in my hands. Mike always delivers on the visuals as well!
The way I’ve been counting down the days for this.
