“Hood” (Live On WFUV) (Video)

    “Hood” by Perfume Genius has signaled that the forthcoming Put Your Back N 2 It is likely to be one of the most singular musical statements we will hear all year. Mike Hadreas recently performed for the Alternate Side on WFUV, where he delivered this version of the song, demonstrating how it’s every bit as affecting in a live setting as it is on record (or, indeed, in a rather bizarre video). It’s short, barely making it over the two-minute mark, but that’s all the space Hadreas needs to deliver his fractured vision, which falls somewhere between the ashen laments of Antony and the Johnsons and the stirring rock-oriented work of Jeff Buckley. Check it out in the clip below. [via AHIAS]
