Youth Lagoon - Raspberry Cane

Holy goodness this album is so wonderful! Youth Lagoon’s new album may sound a lot different but the feeling of happiness it brings me is the same.

This dimension and the next
The living and the dead
The wave into the corpse
Everybody cares
Everybody cares
I’m sure love exists
And this is what it is

I’m polluted by my blood
So help me cut it out
And rinse it down the drain
Everybody cares
Everybody cares
They say love exists
Then what happened to it?

Everybody’s wanting to see
Wanting to see it come alive
Pour the ashes into the cup
Mix with wine
Here’s to sleep, drink up

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m way too obsessed with Youth Lagoon, and his new album Wondrous Bughouse has only fueled my obsession. It includes the familiar loved elements from The Year of Hibernation while still developing it’s own unique style. Raspberry Cane is one of my current favorites from the new album. It’s far off sound is reminiscent of The Beatle’s Magical Mystery Tour album but like everything from Youth Lagoon it’s still completely it’s own.
