Elvis Perkins

Los Angeles' singer-songwriter Elvis Perkins (son of actor Anthony Perkins) debuted with the starkly mournful and brutally introspective Ash Wednesday (XL, 2007), dominated by a sense of death, a soundtrack to his personal calvary in a mostly acoustic format, a downtrodden vision that had distinguished role models in Leonard Cohen and Nick Drake (notably the tender Emile's Vietnam in the Sky and the otherworldly While You Were Sleeping).

He hired a real band for Elvis In Dearland (XL, 2009) and the EP Doomsday (2009). The music finally revealed its roots (whether marching bands in Doomsday or blues in I'll Be Arriving or cabaret in How's Forever Been Baby), but lost some of the poignancy of his debut.
