Album Review

Barbeau, Anton – “In The Village Of The Apple Sun” – [Four-Way]

Numa   11/14/2006   A Library, CD

Psychedelic Wonder Pop. Sacramento-based Anton Barbeau put together an album I didn’t even know I was looking for. His lyrical mysticism had me tied up in knots for the first few tracks, but once I let the words just roll over me the meaning became clear. Almost a constant stream of one-liners that leave you astounded and bewildered. From lines such as ‘Cantaloupe is what you called the fruit you had for breakfast? and ‘This is why they call me Guru 7″ you become trapped. It is as if Anton is a blind mad puzzle master working the pieces of a endless white puzzle without forcing mismatched pieces. His 10th album in a hopefully long career is out on San Francisco’s Four-Way records should not be missed. This one is destined to be a classic. — Numa
