Elvis Perkins in Dearland

This post is all about my favorite artist/band of the year, the little-known and should-be-widely-known (for the benefit of music appreciators everywhere) Elvis Perkins (in or out of Dearland), who is certainly in my top 10 favorite artists of all time. I'm not going to break down their music for's late, so I'll save that for another day.

I'm going to give you a link to the vid for my favorite song, "While You Were Sleeping," but just know that this is not the best version. I can't find my favorite version anywhere online...I downloaded it from their myspace or something over the summer & it's no longer there, but this is the closest version I could find (live on Letterman...GO PERKINS IN DEARLAND!). It's still beautiful, but when you ask yourself, "OH! Can it get ANY BETTER THAN THIS?!?!?!?!???????!!!!!!" that the answer surprisingly is "yes. Elvis Perkins in Dearland can make the most amazing things happen."

And my 2nd favorite song, which actually has more general appeal:

ENJOY. May they move you in the way that they've moved me. Refresh the soul!
