Perfume Genius – Spotify Singles Session Out Now, Fall Tour begins 9/27 in Santa Barbara

For those who have been able to see Perfume Genius live since the release of No Shape, you might find his cover of Mary Margaret O’Hara’s “Body’s In Trouble” familiar. It has been known to pop up in the set from time to time. Here’s what Mike Hadreas has to say about the song he has chosen to cover over and over:

I started covering this song on tour almost immediately after hearing it for the first time. I was so struck by her command and presence even though she weaves in and out of being present. Her vocal is somehow on the rhythm and completely around it, lyrics and chords are repeated throughout but there is no real center. There are brief moments where the music fully connects in a traditional way but after a few listens the most satisfying part is the song’s magic formlessness. I wouldn’t dare try to mimic or recapture her performance, but I tried to sing in the same wandering, mantra-like way – but taking it somewhere a little more sinister. I’ve lost count of how many times I use the word “body” in my songs.

My relationship with my own body is confusing and I use music to try and puzzle it out, or as rebellion against needing a form at all. Playing this cover onstage every night I use her lyric to phase in and out of both of those ideas.

The Single Session also includes “Slip Away” which was also recorded live at Spotify’s Studio in NYC.


This fall is RIPE with opportunities to see the band. See below dates that include a December residency in NYC as well as a run of shows with The XX.

Perfume Genius Shares Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith Remix of “Wreath” & Announces Dance Video Contest (with support from WeTransfer)

You might be getting the not so subtle hint that “Wreath” is the latest single from No Shape. This past Monday, the band played the song (and many others!) live on Morning Becomes Eclectic. The next night, on Jimmy Kimmel Live, “Wreath” was performed. This morning there’s a new take on the song, a remix by Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith.

EVEN FURTHER, Perfume Genius has launched a dance contest for ‘Wreath’, with support from WeTransfer. You are invited to upload a video of you dancing to the song. The prize for this contest is in my opinion better than any prize for a dance contest, ever. Mike Hadreas will reward his favorite dancer by recording a cover of a song of their choice and sending a special package of ‘witchy surprises’. Full details can be found HERE.


WATCH: Perfume Genius Performed “Wreath” & “Just Like Love” on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Last Night

Algiers – “Cleveland” (Official Video) + New Worldwide Tour Dates

Tomorrow Algiers will begin an extensive North American tour in support of The Underside Of Power. The band have been opening for Depeche Mode in stadiums across Europe the past several weeks, not to mention being spotted in an undisclosed studio location with a disclosed collaborator.

This morning band have just released the official video for album centerpiece “Cleveland” which features the principles of the Black Panthers and was filmed in Staten Island and East new York where Eric Garner and Akai Gurley were murdered by police.

Interlaced with the principles of the Black Panthers’ Ten-Point Program, the video sees frontman and lyricist Franklin James Fisher, who self-directed the video with Marisa Gesualdi and Sam Campbell, between Staten Island and the Pink Houses project in East New York, where Eric Garner and Akai Gurley were killed at the hands of New York City Police Department. The lyrics and title summon Kindra Chapman, Andre Jones, Lennon Lacy, Sandra Bland, Roosevelt Pernell, Keith Warren, Alfred Wright and Tamir Rice, similarly victims of state sanctioned violence, making for a powerful and uncompromising message of resistance and defiance as well as a life-affirming tribute. Fisher also met the family of Eric Garner (photo below) to open a conversation on future support for the community:

“A recurring theme in our music is the idea of injustice and the bitter understanding that obtaining justice in this world is all but impossible–particularly for black and brown people.”
-frontman and lyricist Franklin James Fisher

Kurt Vile & Courtney Barnett Touring Together This Fall, Collaboration LP Out Later This Year

We are pleased, no wait OVERJOYED to announce that Kurt Vile & Courtney Barnett will be touring North America this fall with an all-star band.  This announcement comes alongside the news that the two have completed a collaboration album that will be released later this year…

(photo credit: Danny Cohen)
The inter-continental duo will share the stage, performing songs off their upcoming album as well as delving into their respective back catalogues and covering a bunch of classics, all backed by their band ‘The Sea Lice,’ a revolving cast of musicians including Janet Weiss (Sleater-Kinney, Wild Flag), Stella Mozgawa (Warpaint), Rob Laakso (The Violators, The Swirlies, Mice Parade) and Katie Harkin (Harkin, Sky Larkin and touring member of Sleater-Kinney and Wild Beasts). “A cookin’ band and an intercontinental country duo for the ages—minus the country,” says Vile.

Courtney recalls the seeds of the collaboration:

In 2014 I scored a support slot opening for Kurt at the Abbotsford Convent [outside Melbourne]. We met briefly after the show but I was a bit nervous and didn’t wanna bother him, just grateful for the gig. Years later we started bumping into each other on the festival circuit all around the wide world and we became friends. He hit me up when he was coming to Melbourne next and said he thought we could work together.”

As Kurt tells it:

“I just love her voice in general… great lyrics of course… I love all her music but the song that really hit me was “Depreston”—I know it’s popular but her voice is so good in that song and it’s so pretty and sincere… i’m a sucker for that kinda song: instant classic.

It started out as, maybe we’ll do a split 7″ together but then I figured let’s make it a 12″ so it doesn’t get lost in the world, shoot for 5 songs. It wasn’t until i had another KV tour booked for the following summer in Oz that we thought we should record as much as we can, just see what happens, no major goal to make it a full length, but it came together that way ‘cause the vibe was so strong with everyone.”

For Courtney, the admiration is mutual:

I’m a huge Kurt fan. Smoke Ring was one of my first purchases on vinyl. I was getting over a big break-up, unemployed and drifting and I would just lie on my bed and listen to ‘Peepin’ Tom’ on repeat. One of the most beautiful and luscious albums I ever heard. Me and Jen fell in love to that album.” 

Kurt and Courtney have partnered with Plus 1 so that $1 from every ticket goes to support the ACLU and their work defending and protecting our individual rights and liberties. Support for the Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile (and The Sea Lice) tour will be Australian songwriter Jen Cloher.

The album is the result of 8 days in the studio spread over almost 15 months when Courtney and Kurt’s respective touring schedules allowed for them to be in the same place at the same time. It will be released later this year jointly by Matador Records, Marathon Artists and Milk! Records.

Tickets for the tour go on sale on Friday, but you can grab them early using the code BLUEBERRYHILL today starting at noon in your local market.
