Youth Lagoon – ‘Mute’

Here’s a new track from the Californian dream pop performer Youth Lagoon, in anticipation of his second album, Wondrous Bughouse, out on Mississippi-based label Fat Possum RecordsMarch 18. Led by a an undulant guitar melody, the hallucinating amble of ‘Mute’ is another promising harbinger of what’s to come after the lush composition of January’s ‘Dropla’ followed by the haunting repetition of “you’ll never die”.

Making his mark with the spartan sentimentality of 2011’s The Year of Hibernation, Youth Lagoon promises another romantic escape into his bizarre and world weary universe, while production from Animal Collective and Washed Out producer Ben H. Allen lends a distinctly deviant pop sensibility to his sound. **
