mp3 | youth lagoon | dropla

by now, every one of you have likely heard trevor powers' (aka youth lagoon) new track, "dropla," the first single to emerge from his upcoming full length, wondrous bughouse - due march 5 via fat possum.  the song has been dominating the webz for the past week,  but it would be an injustice to this site, space and time to forego posting it all together.  the boise, idaho man seems to be at it again, after a phenomenal first effort in the form of 2011's year of hibernation, employing familiar but always refined and delicate arrangements that perfectly accompany the artist's fragile, and often frail vocals.  at six minutes in length, the steady and relatively upbeat percussion comes in early, only to eventually taper off as an extended outro emphasizes the wonderfully ambient keys and strings. if you've somehow managed to miss it, stream "dropla" above and snag the free (right click, save link as) download here.
