I definitely think that there is a method to Youth Lagoon's madness. Every song starts off sweet and melancholic, drawing the listener in and kind of taking them into a trance state. Till next thing you know you're waist deep in a whirl-wind of emotions. The music getting fuller and fuller and the vocals getting thicker and thicker until finally there's no room for anything else. Not many musicians have made the conscious effort to take this route into their audiences heads and to be honest, I think it's amazing. This video is a pretty good accompaniment of the chaotic doldrums that this track will send you on... Enjoy.
It's no new news that I'm obsessed with female vocals. I can't put my finger on exactly what it is but there's definitely a nurturing aspect that comes along with the female voice. That being said I feel that it's few and far between when I come upon a new female artist that hits par in my mind for what is that perfect combination of adorable and serious business. Grimes is my new favorite thing. Peep her new track below and don't forget that she'll be at soda bar this February the 25th
