Youth Lagoon announces a new album, upcoming Denver show (audio)By Nic Turiciano | January 16th, 2013 | No Comments »
Trevor Powers, aka Youth Lagoon, the Boise, Idaho, one-man pop machine, has announced the follow-up to 2011â€™s â€śThe Year Of Hibernation.â€ť The 10-song â€śWondrous Bughouseâ€ť is due out on March 5 on Fat Possum, but Youth Lagoon has released the albumâ€™s first single, â€śDropla,â€ť which you can hear below.
Though production has cleaned up noticeably, â€śDroplaâ€ť largely picks up where â€śThe Year Of Hibernationâ€ť left off, continuing Youth Lagoonâ€™s bedroom-oriented confessional sound.
With the new album comes a slew of new tour dates, and among them is a March 1 date at Larimer Lounge. It will be Youth Lagoonâ€™s first performance since his July 5, 2012 show at the Bluebird Theatre with Father John Misty.
