After taking the blogosphere by storm (literally out of a bedroom!) earlier this year, indie-superman Trevor Powers has been busy spreading his hazy & intricate bedroom recordings to the world! Known as Youth Lagoon, the 22 year old from Boise, Idaho is currently finishing up his second national tour and will embark for Europe in 2012!
Youth Lagoon's new album "The Year of Hibernation" was released through Fat Possum Records on September 27th, and was mastered over the summer at The Lodge!
The album received so much praise this year it ended up on almost every year end list published this month. Pitchfork.com placed Youth Lagoon's album on their Best New Music list and also awarded the video for lead single "Montana" a place on their 2011 edition of their Top Music Videos list! This is an album not to be missed by any indie music fan.
