With a new album, Hypnophobia, due May 5 on Polyvinyl, it’s a pretty good time to get to know Jacco Gardner. The Dutch multi-instrumentalist blends Ariel Pink-style melodies with a little Pink Floyd psychedelia, resulting in impeccably lush tunes. Judge for yourself with the album’s title track, “Hypnophobia,” streaming exclusively below.

Gardner is also heading out on the road next week, touring in both Europe and North America. The full slate of tour dates is below.
