Review by John Noyd
April 2013

Quantum leaps beyond his previous release’s evocative bedroom-studio starkness, “Bughouse” opens the floodgates and inhabits a pitch-controlled palace of retractable passages, ghostly alcoves and hoarders’ hallways. Distorted euphoria wrapped in muffled puzzles, Youth Lagoon’s demonic harmonics layer emotional commotion inside malleable galleries of demented gremlins as deposed gizmos overthrow careening machinery for narcoleptic epics harboring garbled marvels and cathartic sparkles. Flirting from séances to circuses; palsied waltzes, gurgling sermons and phantom anthems traipse between blazing, lazered glazes and lumbering pixie-dusted slumbering while woozy cartoon calliopes and over-stocked music boxes dodge a delectable hodgepodge of fluid confusions rippling in mind-bending splendor. Dive in head-first when YL plays Madison’s Majestic Theater May 16th. Opening for him is low-key, electro-soul dream-weaver Majical Cloudz, debuting the soothingly moody, “Impersonator.”
