Will be the first show for me on Friday. "The Year of Hibernation" was a really good album. Suprised but appreciative that they are billed that low. Going from this to TNGHT is going to setup an amazing Friday evening.
Love this dude! Yeah i'm predicting a great early day set to start the fest as well

Listened to the first few songs earlier, digging it. Might have to check out this set.
Really liked the last album and am enjoying this so far.
Would love to see him open the Outdoor. Anyone here seen him live?
was liking that Attic Doctor today reminiscent of a perverted fun house or springy jack-in-the-box
He will not be on early. He's headlining big(ger) venues these days and, well, he's a beast live so I'm sure GV is going to take advantage and not waste the opportunity.
Yes, he would be best live in an early time slot.
Also, stoked to hear he's a beast live, I haven't had the opportunity to catch him yet.
I don't know what type of venues he is playing in other cities, but considering he is playing a shed (albeit a big shed) in SLC, I dont see him being that huge. I wish he was playing a real venue so I could see him after work. I saw him a year ago and it was pretty good, but you could tell he was new to performing. I hope he has worked out the kinks. If he plays an early day set in a tent that would be perfect.
Was really excited for this set, but then picked up the new album - disappointed to say the least...all the charm and gentle anthemic uplift of Hibernation replaced with a bunch of Danielson/Animal Collective freak folk BS - No way I can make it through a full set emphasizing the new album...Hopefully will be able to catch a couple Hibernation tracks early and move on.
Attic Doctor has to be one of the most annoying tracks I've heard in a couple years...but then, anything that sounds remotely like Danielson is a step in the wrong direction in my book.
Yeah I have the opposite reaction. His first album is pleasant on the ears, but I was not expecting the new one to be so psychadelic and awesome.
I'm really loving the new album. I was a fan of the first record but I didn't think it was anything special. After hearing Wondrous Bughouse I'm really excited for this set. I love how much fuller and deeper this record is.
Fuller and deeper? You mean more heavily edited, and less melodic? I'm not sure you actually listened to the album......
Year of Hibernation is leagues above the sophomore effort.

To see Youth Lagoon adapting this emotional obfuscation when the emotionality of Hibernation was its biggest charm is just a sad misguided step in my book. Agree its a much fuller and more adventurous album than the first but its also emotionally inert.
But I will try to give it a few more listens and see if it grows on me.

actually arrived late to coachella last year just so i could see this guy at the troub
fantastic debut album, the 2nd album... other than the single really didnt do much for me, of course ill be checking him out again but would be more pumped if his album hadnt felt like such a let down
Everyones a Photographer.
Watched his SXSW webcast last night. Never heard of him before but I was pretty impressed. Will try to check out part of his set.
So I guess the new album is a little polarizing and that makes sense considering how different it is from the first album.
I thought the first album was just sort of pleasant background music and the new album is blowing me away.
He's now one of my most anticipated sets.
