Jacco Gardner, Schooner

When: Thu., March 7, 9 p.m. 2013

The repertoire of excellent Chicago record label Trouble in Mind exists in a bubble of sundry substances: They've issued uppers-addled garage rock and weed-blanketed pastoral folk, acid-blasted rock and pocket-of-pills bummers. Cabinet of Curiosities, the debut full-length from Dutch multi-instrumentalist Jacco Gardner, pilfers the whole pharmaceutical pantry, sampling at will. Like Syd Barrett reborn in a hi-fi, hi-def world of singing trees and smiling lilies, Gardner offers bittersweet tunes over luxurious swells of sound. As the bass lines rub the temples, the keys twinkle and the guitars drift, the momentum guided by patient drums and Gardner's multi-tracked harmonies. He recorded these songs by himself, so it'll be a thrill to see if these dream states pass muster live. With Schooner. —Grayson Currin
