Jam of the Day | Youth Lagoon - July


As I write this post, I'm sitting on a patio overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Surfers are lined up just on the other side of the breakers, talking about what surfers talk about, and the sun is just starting to make everything in its presence electric pink. I have on headphones, and I have listened to this song five times in a row.  It's become one of those semi-religious musical moments, where the perfect combination of all senses blend to create something truly extraordinary.  If you can, recreate this moment. If not, give this song a few spins early one morning, or late one night.

It's called "July," and it's another amazing new track from the Boise-based bedroom one man band pop project of multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and vocalist Trevor Powers. The new track is featured on Youth Lagoon's debut album, The Year of Hibernation, which is out September 27th, but the song was released earlier this month, and appropriately so given the title

He'll also be at this year's Hopscotch Music Festival, so we will send you a review of the live show just as soon as it happens!
