I picked these five among many of others, since they seem to share an expansive and atmospheric sound.

Youth Lagoon At The Henry Fonda Theater, Tuesday November 17th 2015 Review

By Alyson Camus | November 19, 2015

I have to say I have a soft spot for his second album, these songs still sound like his most experimental ones with their delicious psychedelia exploding in cascades and exploring parallel universes of sonic realities, and if ‘Sleep Paralysis’ or ‘Dropla’ were certainly some highlights for me, the new ones like ‘The Knower’ or Rotten Human’ sounded like incredible and complex sonic collages live

Oldies but Goldies: Youth Lagoon At The First Unitarian Church, Friday October 4th 2013

By Alyson Camus | November 3, 2015

Since I am about to see Youth Lagoon again, I wanted to repost the review of his show at the First Unitarian Church, two years ago. in exactly two weeks, he will play at a larger place, the Henry Fonda theater. His music occupies a special niche in my mind and his obsession with death haunting all his meandrous and wondrous songs is not something to be missed.

Youth Lagoon Feels Like A Rotten Human In His New Song

By Alyson Camus | September 15, 2015

‘Throughout the process of writing this album—about two years—I’ve gone on this spiritual journey to learn more about myself and my faults and all this stuff that I’ve tended ignore for a really long time. It’s so much easier to go through each day and forget the previous day or forget the hurtful things you said to someone or whatever it might be, just the shitty parts of your life. This song is addressing that. It’s really examining what it is that makes me who I am, and what parts of that are disgusting.’

The last minute almost feels a poppy dance song. The tune is very Youth Lagoon but there are obvious changes and may be this brand new photo of his tells us a bit about this new sound?

Listen to Youth Lagoon's 'Worms' For The Space Project

By Alyson Camus | January 23, 2014

Youth Lagoon and his spacey sound were quite perfect for this, and this young guy never ceases to amaze me! His vocals, which start the track, have never been weirder or more emotional

Youth Lagoon At First Unitarian Church, Friday October 4th 2013 Review

By Alyson Camus | October 7, 2013

I had instantaneously liked his song ‘July’ of his previous album ‘the Year of Hibernation’ when I heard it for the first time, and the songs off his new album ‘Wondrous Bughouse’ are all dealing with a bigger, fuller, and bolder sound, which was totally well-served by the full band playing with him on stage.
