Youth Lagoon / Porcelain Raft

Double header tonight at Music Hall of Williamsburg.  Looking forward to seeing how the dreamy sounds translate live.  Porcelain Raft's record has been growing on me, and Youth Lagoon. . . well Youth Lagoon's record might have been my most underestimated of 2011.  Under the guise of late-to-the-party chillwave, Youth Lagoon's The Year of Hibernation manages to achieve this build and release pattern, allowing songs to slowly grow with exdended intros until they burst with sound and emotion.  A far more compelling listen than most to come out of the bedroom-lo-fi-chill-blah pop scene.
