Song of the Day: Jacco Gardner “Find Yourself”

jacco-gardner-music-album-hypnophobia-rightternes

Jacco Gardner wants to hypnotize you.

Late-night drives are an artform that preserves the last vestiges of driving as a release, not an obligation. We’ve all done it – you press play on your favorite mix entitled ‘Contemplative Drive Time’ (also my dream title for NPR’s after-dark psych drone program), and hit the road. You’re semi distracted but that’s why you’re venturing out when there’s few on the road to worry about. You’re just finding yourself.

Jacco Gardner’s latest music video for “Find Yourself” is a hazy kaleidoscopic dream sequence. Synthesized keyboards and the quiet power of a good drum fill make Gardner’s psychedelic, Beatles rock come through wonderfully. You can listen to his album Hypnophobia out now on Polyvinyl Records and catch him on the Seattle leg of his tour 6/24 at Tractor Tavern.
