Perkasie’s self-titled album has consistantly been one of my favorite albums of 2009 since it was released in March.  For a guy who has a new “favorite album of the year” at least once a week I think that says quite a lot, especially for an unsigned band.

THE BEST BAND YOU’VE NEVER HEARD: Perkasie (now available at Emusic). Old-timey, boisterous bubblegum baroque folk. YES.

SERIOUS CONTENDER FOR ALBUM OF THE YEAR, and an entire tumblr could be dedicated to Alex Wash’s seriously awesome eyebrows.
