Perfume Genius - Put Your Back n 2 It (2012)

Call me cynical, but a good controversy has always helped sales in the entertainment world.

This is somehwat different when Google-owned YouTube outright rejected Perfume Genius' 16-second promo clip for "promoting mature sexual themes" and being "not family safe."

I can think of way more overtly offensive clips bandied about without so much a blink of an eye.

Ex-R.E.M.'s Michael Stipe has weighed in claiming the decision dumbheaded, further adding "I find their actions in doing so disgraceful and cowardly. YouTube, shame on you. You were born of the 21st Century, now act like it."  Hear, hear!!

 The 16 sec promo clip

Lead single "Hood" deals with one's insurmountable insecurity and hence the need for "masks" in a relationship.
Catch this clip featuring gay porn veteran Arpad Miklos before those narrow-minded zealots get their hands on it too.

Track 8 off the album via The 405.

Simply brilliant.
