Jacco Gardner – Hypnophobia (2015)

Having admitted that Hypnophobia “comes from a place where fears, darkness and creativity collide, like a slightly scary lucid dream,” one wonders if the album isn’t itself a twisted, surreal illustration of that weird limbo state which happens immediately before one falls asleep. With his barrel organ-tailored melodies and ethereal multi-layered vocals, Jacco Gardner is an alchemist who builds a fantasy world of engaging and hypnotic sounds which trigger involuntary impulses in the most hidden corners of our brains, sending us off into a journey throughout the unconscious. And if Jung’s theory is in fact correct, he may well be singing about our own.
