Dutch multi-instrumentalist Jacco Gardner is hardly the only modern-day musician to build a career around vintage instruments. Arp (Alexis Georgopoulos) and Chrome Canyon (Morgan Z) have a marked facility with analog synthesizers, but Gardner hews closer to baroque pop than art rock, i.e. more Left Banke than Brian Eno. On this year's Hypnophobia, the follow-up to his enchanting debut, A Cabinet of Curiosities, Gardner sings delicately yet precisely over swirls of harpsichord, Mellotron, Optigan, and Wurlitzer. The evocative song cycle conjures images of fantastical fairy tales and symbolist stories about innocent children and mysterious forests. It's bright and pretty with hints of something darker lurking in the shadows, an enticing match for Edmonton opener Calvin Love and his David Lynch-inspired synthscapes. KATHY FENNESSY
