Youth Lagoon, a project from Boise bedroom popster Trevor Powers, understands the emotional heft that comes with a slow-burning crescendo. Take “July,” which just received a surprisingly bloody video treatment. It’s a reverb-drenched torch song that’s perfect for a post-breakup drive through the mountains or napping in a pile of leaves. And of course, his aptly-named debut, The Year Of Hibernation, is out now via Fat Possum.
The Flaming Lips recorded at the Pink Floor Studio in Oklahoma City, this version of The Beatles’s “I Am The Walrus”. After long time making their 6hours and 24hours songs, selling skulls and vinyl boxes reissues, the band is date to perform last day of the year at Yoko Onon New Year’s Freakout.
Mezzala is goin to be one of the most interesting italian pop acts of this end of the year. He made a present for everybody under christmas time, a bizarre cover of AC/DC’s mastersong “Should Me All Night Long”, well happy new year.
