Fat Possum band Youth Lagoon are releasing their new album Wondrous Bughouse next week on Fat Possum Records, check out the entire album in full this week in the player above. The music has lo-fi indie pop / dream pop sound, and gets tripped out pretty fast. More directly, Youth Lagoon is actually Trevor Powers, who got deep on Wondrous Bughouse by writing the album around the idea that he was "becoming more fascinated with the human psyche and where the spiritual meets the physical world."
"Youth Lagoon is something so personal to me because writing music is how I sort my thoughts, as well as where I transfer my fears. My mental state is usually pretty sporadic...a lot of this record was influenced by a fear of mortality but embracing it at the same time. Realizing that human life is only great because it is temporary. Experimenting with ideas about dimensions. I'm not a gifted speaker, so explaining things is difficult for me. But music always makes sense," he said.
