Trevor Powers is back announcing his third album as Youth Lagoon. He’s held a special place in my heart, ever since the first time I heard “Cannons” back in 2011. With each record, Trevor has managed to evolve, and explore a new facet of his seemingly unending creative nature. “Knower” is an evolutionary journey in and of itself, starting with a creeping etherial falsetto that ultimately grows into a triumphant crescendo Sufjan Stevens would be proud of.
You can pre-order Savage Hills Ballroom via Fat Possum Records.
