Even though it’s been a few years since Youth Lagoon‘s debut The Year Of Hibernation came out, it’s still a staple album on my playlist, and, naturally, I’ve been anxiously awaiting his new material. We got a taste of his sophomore album, Wondrous Bughouse, with the quirky “Dropla” not too long ago, and now we have another new song. “Mute” shows us his signature warmth and dreaminess, but also points to his exploration of other sounds and textures. Rather than just showering us with “instantly gratifying” melodies, he takes his time and flexes some complexity here and there. I think it’s safe to say we’re more than ready for the challenge. Listen in below.
Wondrous Bughouse comes out March 5th via Fat Possum Records.
