ABOUT EDMOND DANTES
The genre defying duo Edmond Dantes (edmonddantesband.bandcamp.com) released Etta, their first EP of original tunes, on Feb. 12 and celebrated with a pair of triumphant release parties. Since its release, Etta has remained firmly entrenched in The Record Exchange Top 10 and garnered heaps of critical praise:
“Sassy-soulful vocals, swaggering ’80s synths and lip-curling, laid-back bass lines … shimmering atmosphere atop delicious grooves.” — Idaho Statesman
“A solid collection of pop tunes that use strong melodic hooks and straight-ahead beats to craft tunes that are equal parts The Killers and Hall and Oates.” — Boise Weekly
ABOUT YOUTH LAGOON’S ‘WONDROUS BUGHOUSE’
Wondrous Bughouse, Youth Lagoon‘s sophomore album (available on CD and vinyl March 5 at The Record Exchange; free poster with purchase!), was spawned from what he describes as “becoming more fascinated with the human psyche and where the spiritual meets the physical world.” During the time he wrote, Powers became intrigued with the metaphysical universe and blending those ideas with pop music.
“Youth Lagoon is something so personal to me because writing music is how I sort my thoughts, as well as where I transfer my fears,” explains Powers. “My mental state is usually pretty sporadic … a lot of this record was influenced by a fear of mortality but embracing it at the same time. Realizing that human life is only great because it is temporary. Experimenting with ideas about dimensions. I’m not a gifted speaker, so explaining things is difficult for me. But music always makes sense.”
