I broadcast my love for Elvis Perkins around the internet at the tail end of the last decade. (He was, after all, the first person to call me the Alpaca Queen.) After his last tour for his previous album, however, he stepped out of the spotlight apart from the occasional appearances on compilations and opening spots for better-known artists.
Last week, the lead track for his new album, I Aubade, made the digital rounds. It might not have been the biggest music news of the week, but it won my heart.
Ladies and gentlemen…“Hogus Pogus”.
