Pet Sounds from a Bughouse

March 11, 2013


Every band these days from The Flaming Lips to Panda Bear wanna make their own Pet sounds.
Youth Lagoon are no different.
Phil Spector Wall of orchestration, found sounds, and beautiful melodies.
Check, check and check.
What’s missing is not Van Dyke Parks but the cracked aged innocence of Brian Wilson.
That and of course the disorientating joy of hearing something new being created.
But that seems to just be the anxiety of influence of these times. Just add more influence and less anxiety about hiding it.

Still if you put your headphones on and lie back on the floor of your darkened room and allow it, this record can take you someplace special.
