Hailing from Victoria, British Columbia, Dylan Perkons's latest single is both mainstream and classic folk, but with its own little twist. "Love Like Mine" straddles that difficult line of being smooth and pop enough to appeal to a widespread audience while having just enough twang to appeal to country/Americana purists. The x-factor for Perkons is going to be his voice. I'm personally a fan, but a lot of my favorite singers have a unique not quite traditionally pleasant sound to their voices (think J Mascis or Bob Dylan). That's not to say that Perkons doesn't have a great voice, it's just not the type that you hear on this style of music. If it doesn't grab you right away, stick with it to the end and there's a great chance you'll end up completely into this song.
