Lower Dens' Jana Hunter and Perfume Genius Chat About Gender, Vaping, Touring, More on Talkhouse Podcast

Lower Dens‘ Jana Hunter and Perfume Genius (aka Mike Hadreas) chatted with each other for the latest edition of the Talkhouse Music Podcast. They discussed a number of subjects, such as the ins and outs of vaping, how Clark Kent is sexier than Superman, their different approaches to touring, gender, and more. Listen to it above.

At one point, Hunter dicusses the thinking behind the op/ed she penned last year, “What It’s Like To Be A Female Musician When You Don’t Identify As A Woman”.

It was interesting to write about it because i knew i was writing for people who were going to read it in Cosmo maybe have no idea what I was talking about before. I just wanted to be informative without making anybody feel defensive about what they didn’t know, or what they already thought about it. It’s hard. You have to write like you don’t have any strong opinions about those things.

Later, Hadrias expounded upon his feminine alter-ego:

I write a lot as this woman. I have a Facebook profile for an older woman that lives in Juneau, and I write as her a lot. She’s really into mystery writers, and she writes these long things about when she met them and stuff. It’s really nonsensical. She’s really into Barbara Kingsolver, and mystery writers…Dennis Franz, from “NYPD Blue”, that’s her favorite actor. And the Rembrandts.
