13 Songs, 46 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Elvis Perkins’ third album is the closest he’s come to getting all of himself on record. It was largely recorded at home with him handling all the instruments. It’s a somewhat lo-fi collection, recorded in part on four-track tape machines. Perkins’ voice can be easily heard, but is often accompanied by additional vocals that wander through the mix, along with found sounds and random noises that create the feeling that other music is bleeding through old recording tape. This otherworldly feel enhances songs like “On Rotation Moses,” “Gasolina,” and “All Today” and gives the entire album the sense that it’s a long-lost recording finally recovered.
