Perfume Genius kicks up a stink

Perfume Genius release debut single Mr Petersen on limited edition 7” vinyl on February 22 through Transparent.

Living in Seattle, discovered by Turnstile (who also brought the likes of Girls and Swanton Bombs to the world) and making music entirely on his own at home, not much is known about the young Perfume Genius – aka one Mike Hadreas – except that he creates sparse, fractured ballads like no other, delicate cobwebs of love, loss and longing held together only by piano and Hadreas’ remarkable voice, a trembling, spectral croon which sometimes calls to mind Dean Wareham circa Galaxie 500 at his most bereft.

We need your help

Running a website like The Digital Fix - especially one with over 20 years of content and an active community - costs lots of money and we need your help. As advertising income for independent sites continues to contract we are looking at other ways of supporting the site hosting and paying for content.

You can help us by using the links on The Digital Fix to buy your films, games and music and we ask that you try to avoid blocking our ads if you can. You can also help directly for just a few pennies per day via our Patreon - and you can even pay to have ads removed from the site entirely.
