Perfume Genius' "Dark Parts" Video Makes Us Want to Hug Our Moms (And a Chihuahua)

Gary Pini

Seattle singer/songwriter Mike Hadreas makes beautiful (and sad) music under the name Perfume Genius. He just played in NYC to a packed crowd and stirred-up some controversy with his video for "Hood" featuring adult actor Arpad Miklos -- profiled on Papermag back in 2007.  Now he's released this video for "Dark Parts" from his new album, Put Your Back N 2 It (Matador). The clip was directed by Winston H. Case and stars Mike's mom and some cute dogs.
