Jacco Gardner - "Find Yourself" (audio) + New Album Announcement

by Brice Ezell

18 February 2015

Vocoder-esque effects meets a spaghetti western aura in the newest single by Jacco Gardner, "Find Yourself", off of his just-announced LP Hypnophobia.
 

Dutch producer, multi-instrumentalist, and “baroque pop prince” Jacco Gardner has just announced the forthcoming release of his sophomore studio LP, Hypnophobia. This follows the 2013 release Cabinet of Curiosities. In tandem with announcing the album, Gardner dropped the spaghetti western-inflected track “Find Yourself” to give a tease of what’s to come on the full-length.

In PopMatters“Best Hopes to Break Out in 2014” piece, Alan Ranta wrote of Gardner, “It is exhilarating just to think about what’s going to happen with this kid when it all comes together, and his drive points to that inevitability happening soon.” With Hypnophobia, we’ll soon find out.
