From Ethan Hill ’16:
AuralWes presents dutch psychedelic pop musician Jacco Gardner in the Cafe this Friday! Gardner just released an astonishingly beautiful debut record, The Cabinet of Curiosities, and he and his band are touring the States for the very first time this winter. His show here at Wesleyan will be his DEBUT U.S. APPEARANCE, so don’t miss this special evening!
NPR says: “Dutch multi-instrumentalist and producer Jacco Gardner’s debut album, Cabinet of Curiosities, offers a fresh take on the baroque pop sound of the 1960s. Gardner plays every instrument on the record except drums, and his studio acumen, command of instrumentation and sense of arrangement recall and update the kind of ornate songs orchestrated by groups like The Left Banke and The Zombies and producers like Brian Wilson and Van Dyke Parks.
Featherwood Bee and O Presidente will be opening the show. O Presidente just released a hoppin’ record and will have CDs for sale, so don’t miss out!
