Listen to Youth Lagoon Cover John Denver’s ‘Goodbye Again’

Youth Lagoon makes tunes that are generously described as "bedroom pop,"  a term which can be applied to music and not just the open container of Squirt sitting next to your bed. Hey-o! The band is technically one guy named Trevor Powers, and his album The Year of Hibernation is very soothing and intimate without falling into chillwave blandness. They sound like he’s playing from inside your bedroom, hence the genre name.

If the entry point of one album is too much, Powers covered John Denver’s "Goodbye Again" during an apparance on Sirius XMU. His voice is actually real similar to Denver’s — the clearest description I can form is that they both sound like a child goat pleading for its mother’s milk, which is definitely not an obscure image whatsoever, no. You can just hit play and compare for yourself. Powers plays piano instead of guitar, and there’s no heavenly backing on the chorus. But it’s very nice, you know?

Below, you can watch the video for Youth Lagoon’s "Montana."
