Best Covers: Perfume Genius ‘No Shape’

Perfume Genius has been relatively quiet this year. Bar releasing ‘Reshaped’, a remix album of songs from last year’s No Shape’, there’s not been much on the menu for Mike Hadreas.

The singer has now shared a new cover though, of ‘Not For Me’ from ’60s singer Bobby Darin.

Favourite Gig: Perfume Genius

El músic nord-americà Mike Hadreas, conegut artísticament com a Perfume Genius presenta a l’Apolo el seu quart disc, ‘No shape’ (2017). Un disc que ha rebut grans elegis on sense fugir dels sons més intimistes dels seus inicis la seva paleta s’ha ampliat i ha abraçat la sofisticació, l’elegància del soul, les textures electròniques i el pop èpic sense despentinar-se.

The muses of La Musa: Christine and the Queens

La Musa, the muse of Ville à Dômat’s Temple has chosen her “muse” of the week.

Christine and the Queens is Nantes-born Héloïse Letissier. Moving to London to study in 2010, Letissier instead found herself drawn to the art and theatre underworld of Soho, where she met the drag queens of Madame JoJo’s who inadvertently helped birth Christine and the Queens. The following year she released the first of a series of three EPs, each one building praise and demand for her utterly individual brand of pop. Chaleur Humaine, her French-language debut album produced by Ash Workman (Metronomy) with multi-instrumentalist brothers Michael Lovett and Gabriel Stebbing, arrived in 2014 and has gone more than five-times platinum to propel Letissier – named Female Artist of the Year at the Victoires de la Musique 2015 – to phenomenon status in her homeland.

Already coveted by those in the know, last year Christine and the Queens took a step further into the international spotlight with a number of high profile European shows and capped a stunning year by joining one of her all time heroes Madonna on stage in Paris in December. She released her debut, self-titled UK EP in November 2015 and Chaleur Humaine is now set to make its long-awaited UK debut. The album features EP tracksJonathan (feat. Perfume Genius) and No Harm Is Done (feat. Tunji Ige), and has been completely reworked for its UK release, featuring all-new English versions of French runaway hits Christine and Saint Claude, amongst others.

Productora de Pardals: Perfume Genius

El mestre Bergman i la seva Productora de Pardals han viatjat fins a Seattle per presentar-nos a Perfume Genius. Superades ja totes les comparacions amb Antony Hegarty i Sufjan Stevens, Mike Hadreas segueix dibuixant el seu propi camí i exhibint una sensibilitat fora del comú pel pop dramàtic i emocional. Un camí que va començar a dibuixar amb “Learning”, sorprenent debut de doloroses torch songs reinventades que el va portar directament a “Put Your Back N 2 It”, fràgil i captivador tractat de pop malenconiós i laments al piano. Pel seu tercer treball, aquest cantant de Seattle de veu aspra i tremolosa s’ha envoltat de John Parish i Adrian Utley (Portishead) per tal d’injectar denses atmosferes i robustesa electrònica a les seves composicions. El tindrem al Primavera Sound.
