Elvis Perkins Playing Prospect Park, New York In June

I am a particular fan of Elvis Perkins In Dearland and if you've never heard of them, maybe you should listen to this track 'While You Were Sleeping' from their debut album Ash Wednesday. This is a performance for Blogotheque in Paris.

Elvis is 31 years old and plays with his band 'Elvis Perkins In Dearland', members include bassist Brigham Brough, drummer Nicholas Kinsey and keyboardist/guitarist Wyndham Boylan-Garnett. Ash Wednesday was a gigantic seven years in the making, I really hope we don't have to wait as long for his next offering.

I particularly enjoy the vocals on Ash Wednesday. Seemingly effortless but packed with intensity. Elvis isn't shy from heartache having suffered his father Anthony Perkins (Norman Bates in Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho) passing away from Aids in the early 90's and then nearly a decade later, his mother Berry Berenson being onboard one of the flights that crashed into the world trade centre. I don't want to dwell on those two facts because I'm sure Elvis has had enough written about his personal life and not his music. I'd say in this case, the songs do all the talking and I can't wait to hear more of what these guys can offer.

Elvis Perkins has just announced he is going to be playing playing Prospect Park, New York on June 27th.
