PERFUME GENIUS / Put Your Back N 2 It [2012]

Mike Hadreas' second album under the Perfume Genius name Put Your Back N 2 It is easily going to be one of my favorite albums of 2012.
It has a brutally honest and stripped down fragility on it that could have so easily fallen into schmaltzy melodramatic slop but never does. Hadreas voice is a bare-all falsetto that's backed up by spacey piano based songs that sound like a cross between the more emotionally musical moments in a David Lynch film and Sigur Ros.
It's the type of personal album that makes the listener mildly uncomfortable in some of the more soul-baring moments...and that's what makes it.
