Linda Perhacs – “The Dancer”

Linda Perhacs put out her debut album, Parallelograms, in 1970. Although the record flopped commercially and Perhacs moved on from music, returning to her day job as a dental technician, Parallelograms gained a cult following over the course of the next few decades, eventually becoming known as a lost psych-folk classic. And 44 years later, in 2014, she finally followed it up with The Soul Of All Natural Things. Fortunately, we won’t have to wait another 44 years for her third album, as Perhacs has just announced plans to self-release a new album through Kickstarter. Produced by Wilco’s Pat Sansone and Fernando Perdomo, the as-yet untitled LP will feature guest appearances from Julia Holter and Devendra Banhart, among others, and backers of the Kickstarter campaign will get rewards like Skype chats with Perhacs and signed copies of the album, lyrics sheets, and guitars. Listen to lovely first single “The Dancer” and watch her discuss the album below via Pitchfork.

There’s no official release date yet, but it looks like the plan is to release the album in September. Perhacs is also appearing on the song “You Wash My Soul” on Mark Pritchard’s new album Under The Sun.
