Jacco Gardner Shares “Hypnophobia” + Tour Dates

We have brand new music from Dutch music maker, Jacco Gardner, who shares his latest track “Hypnophobia” the title track from his forthcoming album, out May 5 on Polyvinyl. Imported from Hoorn, Netherlands, Gardner made huge waves playing songs from the new album in the states for the first time at recent dates at SXSW and BURGERAMA.

“Hypnophobia” seems adequately named. The track winds and swirls, putting the listener in the trance of Jacco’s sound of fuzzy baroque, all while hiding behind a veil of ominous psychedelia. The Dutch multi-instrumentalist paints a picture much like that of Foxygen or of Montreal, but with a touch of extra John-Lennon-on-acid vibe.

After the release of his album, and a handful of dates in Europe, Gardner will return stateside to give listeners a taste of Hypnophobia with a full North American tour including NXNE shows in Toronto. Full tour schedule is below and you can pre-order Hypnophobia by clicking here.
