  1. Single Serving: Youth Lagoon – Rotten Human

    We’re not too far out from the release of the new album by Youth Lagoon (a.k.a. Trevor Powers). So, with only a few weeks before Savage Hills Ballroom‘s September 25th release, he’s sharing the album’s latest single “Rotten Human.” It’s a slow-burning tune that gradually builds along a soaring melody. Give it a spin below. Continue…

  2. Single Serving: Youth Lagoon – The Knower

    Last week Youth Lagoon, a.k.a. the project of Idaho-based Trevor Powers, announced the followup, Savage Hills Ballroom, to his excellent 2013 LP Wondrous Bughouse. He also dished up a free 7″ vinyl featuring the album’s first single “The Knower.” If you missed out on the hard-to-find free vinyl, you can now hear the track below. Continue…

  3. Single Serving: Youth Lagoon – Worms

    Here’s a unique project for you. Lefse Records enlisted a number of artists for a compilation of songs featuring recordings from space (as in: “the final frontier”). The first release is this track “Worms” by Youth Lagoon. It features noises recorded from the rings of Uranus. How cool is that? Oh, and it’s just a Continue…

  4. Musical Pairings: Youth Lagoon – Wondrous Bughouse

    Admittedly, I’ve not been a Youth Lagoon fan for very long. In fact, until recently I’d pretty much (unfairly) written off Trevor Powers’ music. But that’s changed recently. After more or less immediately falling in love with the first single “Dropla” off his new album, I picked up his previous album The Year of Hibernation on Continue…

  5. Single Serving: Youth Lagoon – Dropla

    Trevor Powers (a.k.a. Youth Lagoon) has prepped his sophomore album which will land in just a few months. In advance of the release he’s set free the album’s first single “Dropla.” The tune features a bright, loose, and humming ambiance that flows alongside a steadily building melody as Powers chants over and over “you’ll never Continue…

  6. Single Serving: Youth Lagoon – The Year of Hibernation

    To be honest, I’d never heard anything by Youth Lagoon until they recently received a best new music recommendation from Pitchfork. I frequently disagree with Pitchfork’s ratings, but in this case they pretty much nailed it. Youth Lagoon is the bedroom recording project of Boise, Idaho musician Trevor Powers, and although it embodies everything you’d Continue…

  7. Single Serving: Communions – So Long Sun

    Nighttime summer anthems are enjoyable because we know that, in the summer, the blistering sun will return as quickly as it set. As fall folds into winter, however, the sun seems to be gone more than its present; we appreciate its setting less and less. Don’t fret though: Danish quartet Communions has an anecdote for Continue…

  8. Turntable Kitchen’s Top LPs of 2013 (11 – 20)

    I’m happy to say that 2013 was a great year for new music. Indeed, narrowing my list down to only 20 LPs proved to be pretty challenging. Nonetheless, this list reflects what, for me, where the best albums of 2013. Here are numbers 11-20 on our list of the year’s best new music. Tomorrow we’ll Continue…

  9. Musical Pairings: Mutual Benefit – Love’s Crushing Diamond

    It’s no exaggeration to say that Love’s Crushing Diamond by Jordan Lee, who records as Mutual Benefit, may be the most beautiful record you’ll hear all year. Lee’s lyrics are intimate, poetic, and heart-warming; often filled with Buddhist-like musings on life and relationships: “I clear my mind of joy and sorrow / river doesn’t know tomorrow / Continue…

  11. Single Serving: /please/ – E.P.

    Bristol-based /please/ (a.k.a. Ellen Davies) makes music that is almost certain to make your heart ache in the best possible way. Much like Youth Lagoon’s The Year of Hibernation, Davies weaves lovely, texturally-lush pop tapestries that are enigmatically distant and draped in warm, fluttery distortion. But where Youth Lagoon painted his first masterpiece with brightly Continue…
