Perfume Genius – Demo (2008)


I feel that beauty of this magnitude really needs to be shared.

These are all the demos available from the mysterious Perfume Genius, off his myspace and zipped up for y’all. Not all that much is known about this guy.  His name is Mike. He lives in Seattle. He sells furniture. He’s 26. He is making his debut album this year. He makes some of the most heart breaking, beautiful, shiver-inducing music I have ever heard. 

  • Personal rating: Ten ten ten ten ten.
  • Best Track: Gay Angels
  • Points of reference: A lo-fi (and better) Chris Garneau with expansive breathing room. Y’know, that whole piano-driven, perfect falsetto, homosexual fragility thing. 

Sample the demos

Here’s his myspace

Update: A new song, When, has just been posted by Mike on Youtube.
