Back in June, when Perfume Genius released his album Learning and we posted a stream of it, we accompanied the stream with big predictions of its popularity. It was fairly popular, but now that Matador is re-releasing it with some bonus cuts, it actually feels more appropriate for winter, when its plain piano songs complement bare branches. This is crackly hearth music, not beach jams. Plus, the inclusion of one of our favorite non-album songs, "Your Drum," and this "Dreeem," only make it feel warmer. Get it now at Matador.
