Following on from The Knower, Youth Lagoon has shared new track Highway Patrol Stun Gun – the second track from forthcoming third album Savage Hills Ballroom – and it is excellent. I was initially hooked by Youth Lagoon’s sparse and moving The Year Of Hibernation but couldn’t get into the follow up Wondrous Bughouse, mainly due to it’s more psychedelic focus is simply not being to my taste. I am now intensely excited for Savage Hills Ballroom as all signs point to Trevor Powers’ latest effort being right up my alley. Highway Patrol Stun Gun’s combination of acoustic and synthetic instrumentation building and warping sounds as lush as the cover of Wondrous Bughouse.
Consider me hyped for Savage Hills Ballroom, out September 25th on Fat Possum.
