Jacco Gardner's Harold-and-Maudlin baroque pop shamelessly derives from the Brian Wilson/Ray Davies school of music. That's never a bad thing, although you always run the risk of simply aping the greats. But the Dutch songwriter does it right, folding in his influences gently, rather than just dumping them in. Gardner should get equal credit for his production skills. He recorded his latest LP, Cabinet of Curiosities, at his own studio, the Shadow Shoppe—and if those names don't clue you in to where this kid's head is at, the music sure will. These rich and textured pop songs sound great on wax. It'll be interesting to see how Gardner pulls them off outside of ye olde Shadow Shoppe. MARK LORE
