SYNDICATE

ElvisPerkinsAshWednesdayNote: Elvis’ father was Anthony Perkins (best known for his role as Norman Bates in Psycho)
Sound: Poetic, yearning and hopeful folk rock with acoustic guitar, upright bass and light but steady drums as a foundation. Piano, trumpet, violin and string sections come and go as they build up and scale back the layers in the mix.
Heavy Rotation tracks: “May Day!”; “All the Night Without Love”; “While You Were Sleeping”
Medium Rotation tracks: “The Night and the Liquor”; “Moon Woman, Part 2”
Explicit Lyrics*: none
Recommended: If you like emotive meditations tempered with steady rhythms and polished musicianship. Elvis Perkins’ quivering, Thom Yorke-like angst is balanced with the dreamy ideals of a troubadour like Donovan and the fanciful flair of a singer/songwriter like Rufus Wainwright.
Grade: B+
