Over the past few years, it seems that every time I go to a different city I see Elvis Perkins in Dearland. First it was in NYC at CMJ '06, then a few months later when I moved to Boston. Even that summer, Perkins and his band were the first act I took it on a hot Friday morning in Chicago at Lollapalooza. I then finished the year of '07 the same way I started it by catching him with some then unknown Bon Iver guy as support. Half the set was made of grand live favorites like "Hey" and "Doomsday", songs that are now set to appear on Elvis Perkins in Dearland the album.
Dearland is Elvis' backing band, hence him being in it and the self-titledness behind their first album together. XL will drop the effort on March 10th of this year. I am sure I will catch him at least four times in that next seven months to celebrate.
