Elvis Perkins in Dearland - Gold Room Session - New Album Available TODAY



Elvis Perkins in Dearland's self-titled record has been on the iPod new-release shuffle since we got it. As Stereogum pointed out when they debuted the video for "Shampoo," the lead track, it's clearly one of the stand-out folk/rock songs of the year. There is something truly captivating about the song, and it translates well live. Perkins & Co. are an excellent live band, and we're looking forward to watching them perform and develop these songs on stage. More often than not, they will grow into full band parties featuring crazy bass drums, guitars and whatever toys they've happened to dig up at the local, second-hand music store. Elvis Perkins in Dearland is available from XL TODAY for $8 as part of the Amie Street Download To Make A Difference program. XL and Amie Street will donate $2 for every album purchased to Clearwater, Pete Seeger's organization dedicated to Hudson River protection and restoration. Buy HERE now! Chalk another awesome record up to the Beggars Group. EPADL tour dates after the jump.
