Youth Lagoon’s Trevor Powers continues his upward trajectory with this track from his recent second LP Wondrous Bughouse. Raspberry Cane sees him maturing into a songwriter of real significance, even if he does overdo it with the Sergeant Pepper-isms. Great video too, perfectly suited to the fairytale wooziness of the song itself. This is dream music, or a soundtrack to those brief moments spent in the wooly no-man’s land between wakefulness and sleep.
Youth Lagoon play Islington Assembly Hall November 1, with Anna Meredith in support.
