Perfume Genius 'Too Bright' ROTM

VOL № E23 — November 2014

Too Bright

Perfume Genius

The world turns wild like dice in the back room. It spins free, like a rorschach evening. So don't let them in now, and take these things easy. This isn't a living room rhythm, but a half-spoken Satie. A cathedral dragged up from an unrepentant sea, and a hand basket of aftermath where we keep all your teeth. This is zebras crashing tuxedo season, and the elephant in the tomb. A leopard in the senator's sheets, and a casket for the groom. This is the new american alphabet, and a war wound rubbed raw. A coffee mug full of absinthe, and a storm across the jaw. A sprint up the station stairs, and a night train too soon. A petulant softness peeling inward, like a darkening blue.

Discover new music

We spend our days digging for great albums. And once we’ve found that gem of a record, we do everything we can to help you appreciate the music. From gorgeous album art to world-class listening guides, you’ll find yourself discovering something new every time you listen.

Score special-edition records. Icon

Score special-edition records.

We’ve got a knack for crafting the most unique, definitive version of any album – old or new. Remastering and reissuing a lesser-known classic album with artist-authored liner notes? We do that. Collaborating with an emerging artist to release their music and tell their story? We do that too. Either way you cut it, we’re creating musical experiences that you won’t find anywhere else.

Swap it Out. Icon

Swap it Out.

With Swaps, you can exchange a featured record with one from the VMP Archive or from a collection of our store titles. Because after fine-tuning your taste over a lifetime, trusting someone else to curate your record collection can be scary. We get it, and we want to help you try new things without forcing a title on you that’s not a good fit.
