Playlist Wednesday: Elvis Perkins
I am a sucker for good lyrics.Some musicians have a gift for making you feel like they're telling you a story as they sing. Singer-songwriter Elvis Perkins does that. His folk-rock style and mellow voice just take me to a calm place. I can't help but listen and follow his stories. Perkins reminds me of Neutral Milk Hotel with a sprinkle of Bob Dylan (if Bob Dylan could carry a tune). Give him a listen. If you want to know more, check out his band Elvis Perkins in Dearland. If you don't want to know more I'll have different music next week.
