[PSYCHEDELIC ROCK] Wondrous Bughouse, the latest release from Trevor Powers, aka Youth Lagoon, is a kooky mind job. Half the tracks sound like they were sprung from a bad acid trip, while the rest seem borne of a collaboration of Gene Wilder’s Willy Wonka and Thom Yorke at his craziest. Throughout, Powers contemplates the great mysteries of the universe and what really constitutes good and evil. And the melting pot of rock, pop, synths and random sonic flourishes makes for the perfect accompaniment to the malaise in his mind. The music of Youth Lagoon might be heavy on contemplation, overly random and low on momentum or any real cohesiveness, but it’s fun to try and figure out what the hell he’s talking about.
