Youth Lagoon Channels "Suicidal Thoughts" on New LP

FUSE TV - Youth Lagoon Channels "Suicidal Thoughts" on New LP

With his debut as Youth Lagoon, 2010's The Year of Hibernation, Boise, Idaho native Trevor Powers became a breakout blog darling. His grand and swelling indie pop anthems shimmered their way onto festival lineups, opening slots for Death Cab for Cutie and across-the-board acclaim from the music press. 

And while his first release was aimed at listeners' hearts, Powers, now 23, is taking aim at the cerebral cortex with his second release Wondrous Bughouse. It's a trippy, heady album with deep layers of sound and experimental samples, lyrics about psychological afflictions like sleep paralysis and whiz-bang production from Ben H. Allen (Animal Collective, Deerhunter). It's also a hyper-personal endeavor for Powers, who tells Fuse that it was inspired by a bout with depression.
