Perfume Genius did an NPR Tiny Desk Concert, touring with The xx

Perfume Genius is the latest artist to release an NPR Tiny Desk Concert. Main member Mike Hadreas played two songs off his new album No Shape with the same band he has on tour, keyboardist Alan Wyffels, guitarist Tom Bromley (aka Tom Campesinos!), and percussionist Herve Becart, followed by “Normal Song” off 2012’s Put Your Back N 2 It with just Alan. Off No Shape, they did the folky “Valley” and the hard-to-classify “Slip Away,” the latter of which sounded more like a stripped-down rock song in this setting. The whole performance is pretty awesome, and you can watch it for yourself below.

Perfume Genius also added more tour dates, including a run with The xx, which is a very cool double bill. The xx are supporting their new album I See You, and we just caught them at Bonnaroo, Boston Calling, and Forest Hills. All dates are listed below.
