On Youth Lagoon's sophomore effort, Wondrous Bughouse, songwriter Trevor Powers continues to make ethereal and oft-whimsical pop songs. He's lately shifted his musical approach away from the DIY lo-fi beginnings that were heard throughout his pensive 2011 debut, The Year of Hibernation. These days, the Boise, Idaho, musician has recruited a formidable supporting cast to flesh out his soaring introspective anthems. In doing so, his music has transformed into a full-fledged sonic affair and earned the recognition his work deserves.
