Even in a time when reissue labels are unearthing a parade of long-lost, under-appreciated musical greats, 44 years is a long haul between albums. That's the time that passed between Linda Perhacs' 1970 debut Parallelograms and her sophomore effort, The Soul of All Natural Things, released this month by Asthmatic Kitty Records. Perhacs was a dental hygienist in LA when she was discovered by a big-time film composer, and she returned to that career after Parallelograms was under-promoted and sold poorly. But over the past four decades, it has gained a cult following—Devendra Banhart, Daft Punk, Julia Holter, and the main dude from Opeth are fans—which has led to the new record. Soul is a wide-eyed wonder of an album, with gauzy, psychedelic folk jams acting as the backdrop for Perhacs' celestially serene voice and sky-reaching spiritual incantations. It was worth the wait, and her concert Sunday at the Old Church should be sublime. BEN SALMON
