ELVIS PERKINS

Elvis Perkins in Dearland

2009-05-11

In what seems to be intended to be an afterthought following his first album, “Ash Wednesday,” Elvis Perkins, in his newest release, “Elvis Perkins in Dearland,” seems to be continuing his exploration of grief and death. Perkins and his very capable band explore those themes from a variety of directions at a wide variety of speeds and with a lot of different instruments. Occasionally experimental and with performances filled with spontaneity, there is nothing boring about this album. The release has interesting production choices and fine musicianship to its credit, and Perkins’ vocal performances are equally impressive.
