It’s Been Awhile, Elvis Perkins
Has it really been five years since we last heard new music from Elvis Perkins? I’ll excuse the writer, as he’s not been graced with the easiest of lives, but I definitely missed his songwriting. I love the stripped down effect that initially carries this song through, though I could easily do without some of the extemporaneous noises that fill its final seconds. Still, there’s a familiarity and warmth in voice that’s always made his songs rewarding for listeners. He’s got a new effort called I Aubade, which comes out on February 24th via MIR Records.
