Jacco Gardner- Psych Trail Mix Music Zine

.
Jacco Gardner
Cabinet of Curiosities

Trouble in Mind

Dutch act Jacco Gardner is among the vanguard of young European artists strengthening the mantle of psychedelic music while also carrying on Holland's long-standing penchant for producing significant psych acts.

Gardner's psychedelia is a gentle sort and some songs like the quiet "Watching the Moon" are reminiscent, especially lyrically, of Donovan's work. But for the most part Gardner's music sounds like the psych-pop favored by Syd Barrett-era Pink Floyd; if you like that band's "See Emily Play" you'll like Cabinet of Curiosities all the way through and especially "The Riddle," "Clear the Air" and "Summer's Game."

Gardner uses warbling organ and tinkling electric piano to augment the basic guitar, bass and drum line-up backing his innocent, wonderment-filled singing but nowhere is there a freak-out; "Cabinet of Curiosities" appropriately has a few odd sound effects not utilized in the other songs but overall the album is as mellow as a Saturday afternoon mushroom munch.

Psych Trail Mix Music Zine, Vol. 7

Readers of mags like Shindig! will enjoy this 'zine; it covers well-known psych acts like Donovan, obscure groups like Orange Alabaster Mushroom and artists who work in psych-adjacent genres.

Some highlights of this issue include an interview with filmmaker D. A. Pennebaker about his work with Dylan, an interview with Kim Shattuck of the Muffs and Pandora and an in depth look at Flipper.

Lots of reviews of CDs, LPs and singles featuring music both vintage and new are included as well. Download Vol. 7 and all the back issues for free here.
