MP3: All Waters by Perfume Genius
This song feels about as raw as a song can. Like exposed bone. With little more than a droning synth swell, Seattle songwriter Mike Hadreas’ injured vocals have nowhere to hide. It’s fitting, then, that the song’s protagonist is dreaming of the day when he will no longer have to hide. Dreaming of the day that a person, any person, can show their love for any other person on any crowded street with no hesitation. Given Hadreas’ sexual orientation, the message is fairly unambiguous. And utterly heartbreaking. Download it below for free.
