so I’ll daydream about you / and I’ll think happy thoughts

San Diego’s Youth Lagoon is the mastermind project of one musician named Trevor Powers. His debut album The Year of Hibernation was released on Fat Possum Records in 2011, and was named by Pitchfork as ‘Best New Album.’ Each song on Youth Lagoon’s debut plays out like a chapter to a book, and seamlessly segues into one another as if the sounds are traveling through water. Energized and yet still pleasantly peaceful, Youth Lagoon takes the listener on an escape from reality, and into a psychedelic journey through a dark wilderness scattered with brightly lit speckled notes all throughout the trees.

About The Author


“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle Maree, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
