Artist: Perfume Genius

Mike Hadreas, also known as Perfume Genius, will release his new album, Too Bright, next week via Matador Records. In anticipation, the entire album is now streaming at NPR. The record will follow up 2012's Put Your Back N 2 It, and features Portishead's Adrian Utley and PJ Harvey affiliate John Parish.
Let’s be honest here, this week belongs to Weird Al. There was really no need to even put a list together. That being said, we did it anyways but we left out the Weird Al because it simply wasn’t fair to everyone else. From a pop star cementing themself in an ever-changing landscape, to the return of a brilliant, forgotten artist, to a certain artist’s influence having a positive effect on an aimless band. Regardless of Weird Al’s dominance on mainstream music, this week was still pretty great. Check out the 10 best songs of the week below.
