This is ace! When this 7" was handed to me I eyed it with suspicion. A funny-looking guy stands next to some kind of gnome house, proudly clutching a large stick he has found. I know better than to judge a record by its cover these days, though, and if you take it out and put it on your record player you'll find that Swiss one-man band Balduin is actually crafting some really top drawer psych-pop, with three originals and a cover squeezed onto this 45.
He's obviously influenced by the likes of The Zombies and Syd Barrett, but it's quite a modern-sounding single too. Soft and warm and uplifting like Tame Impala but also with a more focused earthiness which is making me think of Jacco Gardner or Mmoss. There's a cover of Sam Hutt's 'Jabberwock' which has a great slightly hesitant groove and gloriously expansive arrangements full of uplifting mellotron and harpsichord. Closer 'Waves, Stars & Moon' does get a little bit 'Listen To What The Flower People Say' but essentially this is a thoroughly commendable update on '60s psychedelic pop of the type you would expect to hear on Trouble In Mind. Thumbs up.
