Youth Lagoon, Young Magic, Robes 

When: Sat., Nov. 12, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $8-10

In the last few years, the number of bedroom pop crooners who have turned a handful of lo-fi recordings into upstart careers with potential is too high to track. Sometimes these folks stick around, maturing and progressing nicely, and sometimes they become nothing more than a fading memory of the blogosphere. Only time will tell if Youth Lagoon—the project of Idaho singer, songwriter and arranger Trevor Powers—stays or goes, but in either case, his debut, The Year of Hibernation, is an icy, affecting look at isolation. Powers writes some of the prettiest, most endearing melodies to creep into indie rock in the last few years, but on Hibernation, they sound distant and ghosted, like an echo of a pop song you heard in a dream as a kid. He's done his best to maintain that essence live, using a minimal setup and that touching voice to fill progressively crowded rooms with loneliness. With Young Magic and Robes. —Grayson Currin
