Perfume Genius gives you the slow, kind of sad thing. Twin Peaks and the Smiths lurk somewhere way in the background, but the vocals are youthful in a later manner. Put Your Back N2 It (Matador) is the new, second one. It's a Seattle-based thing and Michael Hadreas is the singer-songwriter that's behind it.
I like the sound, the arrangements, Michael's voice, the songs. It's moody. I am moody right now. I am always moody anyway. This isn't exactly "life is wonderful" music.
It's different enough not to be the same. That's a logical thing. But Michael is different in ways that make a difference.
