Now that Elvis Perkins in Dearland has released The Doomsday EP it seems that I can’t shake the title track of the EP from my head. A great sidenote as well is that a live performance of this track is now featured on our newest WERS Presents Music For the Independent Mind, Vol. IV compilation. This morning, I found a great video of Elvis Perkins in Dearland performing “Doomsday” with special guest Bon Iver. This video was taken during their show together in Orlando, FL this past summer! Check it out below!
If this video is making you want to see Elvis Perkins in Dearland live, you’re in luck because WERS is Welcoming them to the Paradise Rock Club on November 30th. Hope to see you there!
It’s time for our WERS ALBUM OF THE MONTH!
Each month, the WERS Music Staff reviews hundreds of releases to bring you the WERS Album of the Month—our pick for the best album from an emerging artist. April’s Album of the Month is the self-titled sophomore release from Elvis Perkins in Dearland. The follow-up to his beautiful 2007 debut release, Ash Wednesday, Elvis Perkins In Dearland features unique instrumentation, a robust horn section, and dark lyrical imagery.
Listen to WERS on Tuesday, April 21st as we spend the day highlighting tracks from the album and giving away copies throughout the day! Look to WERS.ORG for exclusive Elvis Perkins In Dearland content.
Also, stay tuned as Elvis Perkins In Dearland comes to WERS for an in-studio performance on Wednesday, April 22nd at 3:30 PM. He’ll be stopping by before playing a SOLD OUT show at the Brattle Theatre that night.
