Youth Lagoon’s new album Wondrous Bughouse drops March 5 via Fat Possum. Last month Trevor dropped the sublime “Dropla” raising my expectations sky high. Today he cut another track from the album loose, the more experimental “Mute”.
Where “Mute” starts out with an uneasy beginning, it soon finds solace in a transition that sets it free, able to find comfort in sky high heights. It’s a more experimental sound for Youth Lagoon, but he is able to work all of his charm into it making it feel like a natural progression. Is it just me or are there parts of “Mute” that sound like Sigur Ros?
