SONG OF THE DAY: Youth Lagoon — “Montana”

Youth Lagoon – Montana from Tyler T Williams on Vimeo.

Youth Lagoon’s debut album, Year of Hibernation, was released in 2011. It’s been one of my favorite albums since I found out about it, for it beautifully combines Trevor Powers’ dreamy but eery voice with some great synth action. Trevor wrote and recorded the whole album by himself, and plays live shows with a guitarist. The video matches the song perfectly: get ready for a blast of nostalgia.

UPCOMING SHOW: Atmosphere, Common, and Grieves at Red Rocks 1/27

If tickets aren’t sold out yet, they’ll go soon, so get on that. This is the first winter show Red Rocks has ever hosted. Ever. This song is “Guns and Cigarettes” by Atmosphere, off the album Lucy Ford. Slug is one of my favorite MCs ever, and puts on a great show. Grieves is also coming into a style all his own, and is from Colorado. I can’t speak for Common, but it’s sure to be a great time.
