Youth Lagoon is performing at Kilby Court on Thursday, Feb. 28, and you can stream his new album "Wondrous Bughouse" now at http://tinyurl.com/acrtll3 thanks to NPR Music.

NPR's Robin Hilton says: "Youth Lagoon's second album, 'Wondrous Bughouse,' is one of the most arresting headphone records you'll hear this year. Trevor Powers, the band's sole member, layers strange but alluring synth textures under quirky melodies and simple pop beats, in the process creating an expansive and endlessly engrossing world of sonic curiosities." Trevor Powers, whose stage name is Youth Lagoon, began writing his debut album "The Year of Hibernation" in 2010.

By the way, the show is SOLD OUT. Looks like people like bughouses.
