The Swiss Alchemist of Music Balduin, fresh from the success of his Sunstone Records 7" E.P "The Glamour Forest" has put together this very special entry in "The Active Listener Introduces" series, guiding you through the best material from his earlier self released albums and EPs.
The psychedelic baroque pop artistry behind "The Glamour Forest" is in full evidence here, but there's also a more diverse and esoteric spirit on display here that reveals an adventurous soul of immense talent and judging by the influences on display here, very fine taste.
Praise for "The Glamour Forest" :
" mines the deep well of British ’60s pop-psych with the skill of a master" - Andy Morton, Shindig! Magazine
" a whispy, paisley slice of 60s psychedelia tinged with Beatlesque melodies and Barrettesque whimsy" - Jeff Penczak, Soundblab
"a thoroughly commendable update on '60s psychedelic pop of the type you would expect to hear on Trouble In Mind. Thumbs up" - Norman Records
" imagine Jacco Gardner with slightly stronger melodies and more of a mischievous twinkle in his eye_ - Ashley Norris, PopJunkie
