Trevor Powers is back with Wonderous Bughouse and certainly does not disappoint.  Youth Lagoon’s sophomore album is richer and perhaps more mature than The Year of Hibernation but maintains a wonderfully distinct psychedelic vibe. Starting off with the completely instrumental “Through Mind and Back,” the dreamy tone of the album is established.  Album musts like “Dropla” and “Attic Doctor” are sure to get some airtime and rightfully so. The whole album is full of childlike lyrics with magnificent arrangements swelling behind them. From start to finish it’s a total trip, cohesive entertaining, and raw, but the songs still have enough backbone to stand on their own.
