This is one of the first few albums that has really connected with me emotionally, combining catchy melodies with melancholy lyrics soaked in reverb.
Pretty much the entire album is made up of songs that gradually build. At first I was worried this would get old, but each song is so powerful and well done, it feels totally natural.
Boise, Idaho artist Trevor Powers' debut release of winsome, electronic-flavored indie pop with a
compellingly chilled psychedelic vibe and an emotional, slow-building approach that maintains a
solid grip on the melodic hook.
The songs carry a subtle, bouncy, childlike buoyancy that perfect-
ly tempers the fragile, eerie, hauntingly confessional aura of sound.
Like a mix of Postal Service,
Mercury Rev, Broken Social Scene, Deerhunter, Death Cab For Cutie, Sparklehorse.

I accidently found this song due to pure curiosity really, but after listening to it, it was so emotionally content that i literally cried.

I love Youth Lagoon. It's like "Sigur Ros" and "Beach House" had a baby.
