We've been eagerly anticipating Perfume Genius'sToo Bright since we heard its blistering, badass lead single "Queen" and started singing it every time we were experiencing self-doubt, so we're psyched that NPR is now streaming the record a week in advance of its physical release. It's a fantastic thirty-three minute emotional bulldozer composed of eleven short, lovely songs like very visual snapshots of disparate experiences; easy to put on repeat, easily to get emotional over. "Grid" is fantastic, so is "My Body;" mastermind Mike Hadreas has a gift for melding simple pop structures with the seething, creepy menace of noise. Check it out below:
