Perfume Genius – Put Your Back N 2 It – new album out today

February 21st, 2012 at 12:00 pm by Patrick

It’s a Tuesday, which means it’s new release day in the US, and this Tuesday sees the first Matador full-length release of the year: the new album from Seattle’s Perfume Genius, entitled “Put Your Back N 2 It.” It’s been called “One of of the best records in recent memory” and “achingly soft and bruisingly powerful” by The Line of Best Fit, “simply exquisite” by Chromewaves, and “deeply personal, accessible and quietly anthemic” by Interview.

Listen to “All Waters” and “Hood” here:
