Pushing forward with her return to music after Parralellograms was released 44 years ago and her triumphant first New York performance last fall, Linda Perhacs has just put out a new single (following “Freely“), and it’s breathtaking. “River Of God” is about big, heavy things — nature, god, death, love — but through the sincerity of Perhacs’ lyrics and her angelic voice, it is an enveloping and touching song.
