Linda Perhacs

Parallelograms

Linda Perhacs is an American psychedelic folk singer, who released her only album ‘Parallelograms’ in 1970 to scant notice or sales. The album was rediscovered by record enthusiasts and grew in popularity with the rise of the New Weird America movement (a subgenre of psychedelic and indie music) and the Internet. Her songs have been featured in soundtracks to many films, most recently and notably in Daft Punk’s ‘Electroma.’

Perhacs also sang backing vocals on ‘Freely’ from Devendra Banhart’s ‘Smokey Rolls Down Thunder Canyon’ and features in Prefuse 73’s track ‘Rain Edit (Interlude)’ from the album ‘Surrounded by Silence.’ Encouraged by the newfound attention to her work, she has reportedly recorded two new albums with Ben Watt (British producer and half of Everything but the Girl) as of 2007.
