Boise, Idaho native Trevor Powers (stage name, Youth Lagoon) burst onto the scene out of nowhere in 2011 with his stunning, yet overlooked debut The Year Of Hibernation, a trippy collection of tunes full of ambiance, child-like innocence, and vocals drawn out and nearly difficult to decipher. He returns into form, yet more mature and expansive for his upcoming March 5 release, Wondrous Bughouse. As what was present in Hibernation, “Mute” builds within the six minutes as the the harping synths drowns Powers’ voice, crashing onto the percussion, and creating an adventure in the process. It is more progressive than the minimalism of its predecessor, whipping into guitar outros and a psychedelic touch to boot.
