Gardner, Jacco – “End of August, The” – [Trouble In Mind]
Gardner is from The Netherlands, and he is known as a “baroque pop multi-instrumentalist.” The two tracks on this 7″ are quite pleasing and mellow, as you would expect music that is tinged with psychedelia to be. His vocals are echoey, understandable, and nice. The sound is so reminiscent of the 70s that I think of the Partridge Family (but maybe that’s just the tambourine, harpsichord, and strings). Of course this means I really like this!
