YOUTH LAGOON – Montana
Occasionally a band name just fits perfectly with the sound being produced. Take a look at Black Lips or The Temptations or Battles or The Clash. Somehow, those words sum up the sonic output of each respective band. The same can be said for todays Howl, Youth Lagoon aka Trevor Powers (still an awesome name), based out of Boise, Idaho.
His peacefully sauntering sort of sound recalls lazy lagoons with ideals of youth and young manhood. Check out ‘Montana’ below and try not to imagine yourself as a teenager (unless you already are one, damn you lucky things) wishing to live in that endless idleness and wilderness of young nature, basking by that dream lagoon, surrounded by setting suns and towering trees.
