Trevor Powers, the man behind Youth Lagoon, taking the stage during the 2nd part of Febfest last Thursday.
Strangely and unexpectedly, his music drew me in deeply. The first time I listened to a Youth Lagoon song, I thought it was plain weird, but when I got to experience it live, it was somewhat magical, poetic even.

Buke and Gase is a (very) experimental duo from Brooklyn, composed of Arone Dyer and Aron Sanchez. Arone plays the buke (a baritone ukulele) while Aron plays the gase (crossbreed of a guitar and bass), instruments which they themselves invented. Their music live was absorbing. It’s so unpredictable and organic that you’d want to hear more and more of it.
