iTunes Editors’ Notes

Though Anton Barbeau has earned the same cult status as other grey-bearded bards like R. Stevie Moore and Daniel Higgs, his music has more in common with the psychedelic guitar pop of Outrageous Cherry. Barbeau’s been recording solo albums since 1993, and his 2010 full-length Psychedelic Mynde of Moses plays with the kaleidoscopic sonicity of a Dukes of Stratosphear recording. The opening title track reveals a tunesmith who's more concerned with crafting catchy power pop than adhering to period-correct tones. Songs like “Bend Your Mind/The Un-Mothered Stone” and the tripped-out “Fuzzchild” are obviously rooted in '60s psychedelia. But Barbeau lets the contagious melodies and his Robyn Hitchcock–esque inflections work an organic magic on your ears, making for something that sounds closer to the XTC family tree than another Beatles disciple. Barbeau seems aware of this, as he admits to being a “reasonable freak” in the cosmic pop of “Reasonable Freq,” where his lyrics poke fun at how he’s been described by music journalists. Not all here is electric Kool-Aid; “Drunk Again” is a synthesizer collage turned drinking song.
