The Year Of Hibernation

The Year Of Hibernation by Youth Lagoon
Released: Sep 2011
Label: Fat Possum Records
"You make real friends quickly/ But not me," squeaks out Trevor Powers, just holding back the tears on opener "Posters." As Youth Lagoon, he's a lovesick kid who lets his self-consciousness unravel amid swirling synths, ringing guitar and programmed percussion. His voice is often manipulated into a distant-sounding echo that only adds to his vulnerable charm. The Year of Hibernation doesn't droop in lonely introspection, though; in fact, it often has a hopeful lilt. Beginning as hushed laments, these songs build into powerfully poignant pieces of sweet, meticulous pop.
