Youth Lagoon @ Pitchfork Festival 2012 (more by James Richards IV)
Youth Lagoon (the project of Trevor Powers) is set to release his second album, Wondrous Bughouse, on March 5 via Fat Possum. You may have already heard the LP's lead single "Dropla," and today, Powers has shared another album track called "Mute." Both cuts are much larger sounding than anything on The Year of Hibernation, though despite the change, Powers has managed to stay intimate with the listener. Decide for yourself by sampling "Dropla" and "Mute" at the bottom of this post.
Youth Lagoon will be heading out on a North American tour in support of Wondrous Bughouse later this month. That tour includes a performance at Metro on May 15 with support from Montreal's Majical Cloudz (who recently signed to Matador and will be playing Schubas with Autre Ne Veut on March 2). Tickets for the Chicago show go on sale this Friday (2/15) at noon CST.
