TRACK REVIEW: Perfume Genius – “Hood”

Written for DIY

Mike Hadreas gives us another preview of what to expect from his second album, Put Your Back N 2 It. We didn’t say “difficult” second album because, well, the first wasn’t exactly easy listening. And Hadreas’ intensely intimate style remains, as it did on the previous new release “All Waters”. Like that song, which employed some Twin Peaks-alike synth strings, “Hood” throws some slowly-building drums in to add to the emotional impact of his sparse piano playing. There may be more players involved (as far as sessions musicians go) now, but Hadreas is still laying himself bare. Almost literally, if you watch the sort-of-work safe video which co-stars a gay porn star.
