Logan Hyde – “Bloated” (Stereogum Premiere)

Logan Hyde spent the past few years touring as the guitarist for Youth Lagoon, but he recently returned to Boise to record his solo debut Innocence. Advance single “Bloated” is dreamy in a different way than Youth Lagoon: earthbound yet still vaguely supernatural, Hyde’s breathy vocals floating in the ether alongside jazzy chords and ethereal… More »

Youth Lagoon – “Worms”

Youth Lagoon’s take on indie pop has always been spacey, but it’s never been literally spacey, at least not like that. The new compilation The Space Project features tracks that actually use sounds taken from space, and Trevor Powers has contributed a song called “Worms,” which has some weird-as-all-hell vocal effects as well as sound… More »

The 50 Best Albums Of 2013

Earlier this year, New York Times pop critic Jon Caramanica wrote a piece about pop’s Summer Of Smooth, about how many of this year’s big warm-weather crossover hits were soft and breezy and immaculately produced and comforting pieces of throwbacky, slick pseudo-R&B. Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” drove the narrative, but it also encompassed Bruno Mar… More »

Youth Lagoon – “Raspberry Cane” Video

“Raspberry Cane” was the cathartic peak on the back half of Youth Lagoon’s Wondrous Bughouse, and now animator Stephen McNally has provided an appropriately wondrous video. Born from the same homemade intimacy that embodies YG mastermind Trevor Powers’s music, McNally’s video depicts awestruck people observing massive, beautiful, and terrifying creatures. The situation brings to mind… More »

Outside Lands 2013 Saturday: Nine Inch Nails, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Grizzly Bear, & More

Saturday at Outside Lands was a typical second day at festivals. The sets ran smoother, there were less technical problems, and the crowds seemed a little more laid back after the initial day 1 excitement dissipated. The sets today were just as incredible as yesterday, but with a completely different vibe – one of the… More »

Stereogum’s Cruel Summer 2013 Mix

This week, for the 237th time, our country tis of thee will celebrate its Miss Independence. Which means that this week, for the fourth time, our blog will celebrate the arrival of Cruel Summer, our annual heartbreak of a mixtape. Tradition. Times have changed since our 2010, 2011, and 2012 installments. Namely, nobody releases free… More »

Sasquatch! 2013 Friday: Vampire Weekend, Macklemore, Youth Lagoon, & More

Driving to the Sasquatch! Festival on Thursday I opted to skip out on I-90 from Seattle and instead drive way up north and take Route 2. It still gets you where you’re going, but the traffic-congested two-and-a-half hour trip you get with 90 becomes an isolated six-hour journey if you choose Rt. 2. It’s completely… More »

Coachella 2013 Weekend 2: Friday’s 5 Best Things

Peel back the surface and look past the picturesque valley backdrop. Forget about the gorgeous, sun-kissed young folk wearing next to nothing (or, on occasion, nothing). Go ahead and ignore the ridiculous hippie art splattering the landscape. Once you get past everything that suggests Coachella is a legit wonderful place, reality sets in. You’re i… More »

Youth Lagoon – “Mute” Video

The young Boise filmmaker Tyler T. Williams and the young Boise wonder-pop auteur Youth Lagoon have made some great videos together before, and now they’ve got another one. This one is for “Mute,” the excellent six-minute centerpiece of Youth Lagoon’s sophomore album Wondrous Bughouse, and it tells the story of a young skateboarding longhair who… More »

Coachella 2013 Friday: Blur, Modest Mouse, Grinderman, & More

“It’s the homeland!” one of the girls on the hotel shuttle yelped as we neared the festival. It really begged the question — who is the most common Coachella archetype? The only data I have to cull from is my experience from last year’s first weekend, but the situation was vastly different. Then, I went… More »

SXSW 2013: Stereogum Range Life, Featuring Youth Lagoon, METZ, Sky Ferreira, Hundred Waters, Bleeding Rainbow, Lakutis

For an afternoon, Stereogum got the keys to the Hype Hotel, bringing at all-over-the-place lineup of performers to the cavernous space. Bleeding Rainbow opened things up early on, admirably wailing their way through fuzzily direct garage-pop and hitting big, harmonious notes while many of us were still wiping sleep from our eyes. Hundred Waters’ electronic,… More »

Stereogum Range Life 2013 Lineup

In a few weeks we join the herd and migrate south by southwest to Austin, where the bands are second in number only to the brands. And we’re throwing our own branded show (what’s up, Taco Bell and Rdio) rife with great bands and free tacos. It’s called Range Life, as we like to call… More »

Stream Youth Lagoon Wondrous Bughouse

Youth Lagoon, Trevor Powers’s expansive and triumphant bedroom-indie project, is about a week away from releasing the sophomore album Wondrous Bughouse, and the two early tracks “Dropla” and “Mute” have both been enormously promising. Today, we learn if the whole album lives up to that promise. All 51 minutes of the album are streaming online… More »

Youth Lagoon – “Mute”

Trevor Powers’ second full-length as Youth Lagoon is imminent, and comes with the squishy psychedelic title Wondrous Bughouse. True to form, then, the album’s second single “Mute” is an expansive, six-minute odyssey of psych-pop, with chunky, heavily processed keyboards and vocals that drip with reverb while the soundscape around it oscillates and spirals into some… More »

Stereogum Monthly Mix: January 2013

By the end of last year, compiling Monthly Mixes became a sad task. Each month I’d scan in sadness, watching our strongest songs presented as straight-to-Soundcloud affairs, our music business continuing its inexorable shift away from the transferrable file, now even in its promotional form. So either this month represents a momentary lapse, or artist… More »

Youth Lagoon – “Dropla”

Trevor Powers, the young Boise native and crafter of triumphantly warm bedroom-rock who records as Youth Lagoon, will release his sophomore album Wondrous Bughouse in about a month and a half, and today we get our first taste of it. The six-minute song “Dropla” carries hazy echoes of Youth Lagoon’s debut album The Year OfMore »
