Tonight's Concert Pick: Youth Lagoon at Union Transfer - WXPN | Vinyl At Heart

Few things are more endearing than a celebrity with a humble heart. 22-year-old Boise-bred Youth Lagoon (aka Trevor Powers) writes bedroom-produced dream-pop composed of piano and synth instrumentals and his soft male falsetto; his far-away vocals are instilled with a sense of shyness while also expressing a bundle of more potent emotions. Powers credits others for his interesting take on music, consistently praising his biggest influences, Cocteau Twins and Chris Garneau. It’s hard to believe that so many cohesive sounds are created by just one young man, however, Youth Lagoon doesn’t capitalize on fame; rather, he chooses to cast aside his power-packing birth-name and allow the music to speak for itself. Youth Lagoon performs with Dana Buoy at 8:30 p.m. at Union Transfer; tickets to the all-ages show are $13 – $15. —Lisa Henderson
