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 keyboard lines. It’s a unique approach with traces of everyone from Ariel Pink to Scott Weiland. Listen below along with previous single “My Only Friend.”

Innocence is due out this summer.
