This week sees one of Idaho’s brightest stars release his second full length album, titled Wondrous Bughouse. I’m talking about Youth Lagoon of course. With the follow-up to The Year Of Hibernation, Trevor Powers’ music sounds more experimental and more psychedelic than ever, almost taking on a sort of Animal Collective sound. Wondrous Bughouse is another beautiful, brilliant intimate album that may be a little less dancey, but makes up in wonderful sounds that come at you from all angles. Definitely one of my favorite albums this year already, you must check it out above. My favorite tracks are the two opening tracks “Through Mind and Back,” “Mute,” and “Dropla.”
Another fresh release this week was Chrome Sparks’ latest EP title Sparks EP. This EP has the hit track “Marijuana” as the second song, but that is not the only song that really hits home. “Send The Pain On” is a bouncy chill track that gives everyone what they want. Sparks EP is full of good beats and chill music. Chrome Sparks lays out great new music and is definitely an artist that’s pushing electronic music in the right direction. You can download for name your own price on bandcamp.
