REVIEW: Jacco Garnder - Cabinet of Curiosities LP (Trouble In Mind / Excelsior)

Cabinet of Curiosities drifts and winds through a lush psychedelic landscape full of vivid sonic textures.  Gardner leads us down into his aural mandala on a cloud as if he's speaking to us from an "outer dream."  He enlists hi-fidelity recording techniques letting the texture and timbre of his varied instrumentation do the talking.  The overall effect is brilliant, tasteful and assuredly mellow.  Like his fellow Barrett-ites, Gardner's songs are sardonic and full of psychedelic imagery. This is one of those albums that makes you want to smoke a joint, put on the headphones and head for the a good way.  The record's out in Europe on Excelsior (Netherlands) and will be available soon in the states on Trouble In Mind.
