The discussion surrounding Seattle based chamber pop artist Perfume Genius
has been one of the most interesting and ultimately depressing conversations of the 2012 music year. Whether it was Youtube's inexplicable decision to brand his music video for "Hood"
as being unsafe for the general viewers despite almost nothing explicitly sexual occurring or the way that every discussion of his music tends to circle back to his homosexuality rather than the music itself (exceptions made for when those two conversations are complementing one another), people haven't paid nearly enough attention to the sheer talent of Mike Hadreas. He's got a new video, "Dark Parts," which is a very touching ode to his mother. Watch it below and prepare to have some Kleenexes handy.
