Spycker (self-released)

Spycker a.k.a. Michiel Omtzigt follows some more experimental releases with a more song-based offering and it's stunning. Opener "Ridiculous Mind" is a calm, yet tensely played song that recalls the nineties lo-fi scene at its best. "A Contemporary Classic" is a soft song with plenty of atmosphere for Spycker to work some magic into. His submerged vocals echoes Syd Barrett's very English whimsy in a good way.

"Leave Me Wary" is another strong song, Spycker singing close to the mike, and delivering a tense tale. "Maddening Mockery" is a song with some nice guitar playing and a vocal with a very real sense of urgency. It's a powerful song on a great album.
