“Queen” by Perfume Genius

Everyday Tuneage Best Albums of 2014
No. 18 – Too Bright by Perfume Genius

A quantum leap from his previous effort, Too Bright is a dark, mesmerizing and occasionally grandiose pop album that, while rooted purely in traditionally 80’s pop aesthetic, is not singularly focused on being retro. Instead, it comes off as a natural extension of Perfume Genius as an artist, with the emphasis on glam and blurring gender lines. Musically, Too Bright is a lot to take in all at once, but with repeated listens it quietly grows into one of the most enjoyable albums you’ll hear this year.

Also listen to: “Grid”, “Fool”, “No Good”
