Youth Lagoon :: "Mute"

His most bombastic effort to date, Youth Lagoon debuts the second song, "Mute" from coming sophomore LP, Wondrous Bughouse. Opening with a spacious guitar line and measured drums, "Mute" is more funeral march than relieved catechism. In keeping with first track, "Dropla", the arrangement spins off into the stratosphere, a sea-sick loop that sounds robbed from a children's carousel. The final movement trends toward cacophony, his biggest guitars to date and a piano line that feels firmly divorced from the admittedly ambitious bedroom creations of his debut album.
