Youth Lagoon

Drenched in equal parts nostalgia and reverb, Youth Lagoon has achieved with its first album a sound unlike anyone else.┬áThe bedroom project is helmed by synth-folk songwriting talent Trevor Powers from Idaho (shout-out to obscure western states!). Indicative of the loneliness and yearning of the music, the album is titled “The Year of Hibernation,” and sounds like a combination of throwback surf-rock and darker, denser folktronica. Check out three songs from Powers’ debut album here:

Youth Lagoon – Cannons

Youth Lagoon – Montana

Youth Lagoon – Seventeen

Panda Bear – Surfer’s Hymn (Music Video)

PANDA BEAR “Surfer’s Hymn”

Street-surfing skeletons in the newest video from “Tomboy.”
