Last month we heard our first listen to Youth Lagoon’s new record in the song “Dropla”. Showing a slight divergence away from the songs off his debut The Year Of Hibernation, I eventually got hooked on his new sound. Although, now I’m into my second listen in “Mute”, and I’m feeling like this track is taking me slightly out of my comfort zone. Its not that its a 6 minute song, more so the carnival sounding effect through the song and the parts filled with overwhelming noise. Maybe this will change the more I listen, but what do you think?
“Mute” is off the album Wondrous Bughouse, out 03/05/13 via Fat Possum.
