Patrick Wolf

by

This stylish English singer has yet to achieve the big American breakthrough his admirers seem certain he’s in for. But that didn’t stop Wolf from doing a full Sam’s Town (as Barry Walters astutely points out in Spin) on his appealingly over-the-top new release, Lupercalia. The record’s been out in Europe since June and is slated for a U.S. release early next year; he hits New York, San Francisco, and L.A. this month in an attempt to build some buzz.
