As Cheryl Waters jokes, it's taken over ten years to get Trevor Powers' band Youth Lagoon in the KEXP studio. Really, the band has only been around since 2010 - it just feels like we've all been waiting that long. We were all happy finally to have wrangled Youth Lagoon come grace us, and the timing was fortuitous: Powers announced on February 1st that his third album, Savage Hills Ballroom, would be his last under the YL moniker. The four-piece hunkered down in the as-yet unfinished studio of KEXP's new home at Seattle Center, playing three songs from Savage Hills and one from his second album, Wondrous Bughouse, and showing how the band's live show has evolved to a fully realized sound from the early two-man-touring days of Year of Hibernation. But before Youth Lagoon takes the big sleep and wraps up their final tour (with a Northwest date at Treefort Fest in their hometown of Boise), you can enjoy this glorious footage of what may become Youth Lagoon's final Seattle appearance.
