From To Kill a Mockingbird to God Only Knows the best articulations of lost youth can have a very visceral impact. The 12 tracks that make up the debut album Cabinet of Curiosities from Dutch multi-instrumentalist and producer Jacco Gardner deftly explore this territory in a far more accomplished and mature way than you singles. Jacco's melodic palette colors music with a more UK sensibility, where minor chords and plush harmonies brush up against strings, mellotrons, harpsichords and an occasional squeezebox. The overall feel is more Zombies than Left Banke and more Nirvana and Billy Nicholls than Beach Boys and Van Dyke Parks. The title track Cabinet of Curiosities is an instrumental reminiscent of the best of Curt Boettcher's projects like the Millennium and Sagittarius with its playful baroque arrangements.
