Music Pick: Elvis Perkins in Dearland

Elvis Perkins in Dearland is a folksy pop band (and album), with songs written by singer Elvis Perkins. I discovered them the way I discovered a lot of new music this fall– on Emerson’s WERS radio. The song that hooked me was “Shampoo”:

“I’ll Be Arriving” is another great song from the album, best described by NME as a “New Orleans funeral march”. “Doomsday” and “123 Goodbye” are pretty good songs as well.

Elvis Perkins’ father played Norman Bates in Psycho. His mother died in American Airlines flight from Boston to Los Angeles on September 11th, 2001.

Trying out a new format of recommending new music that I’m listening to on Music Mondays.
