The wounded heart yells loudestPosted: July 29, 2011
It’s not easy to talk to people. I know this from experience. Often it happens that when you want to express yourself the most, you can’t bring yourself to utter a single word. This is where music comes in to save the day. It allows you to express yourself further and with more detail than you would probably be able to in everyday conversation. That being said, not every great song is happy either.
Enter Trevor Powers aka Youth Lagoon. A young musician from Boise, Idaho putting his heart out on display in the form of a record titled The Year of Hibernation. It will be released on Fat Possum September 27th.
You can listen to a delicately-cut slice off the album titled “July” below.
You will find two more tracks from Year of Hibernation up at his Soundcloud page.
