Heaven Is in Your Mind Cover art

This summer’s Fruits de Mer EP is a four track disc by longtime label associate Anton Barbeau. Three of the songs are cover tunes and the fourth is an original. Anton has a distinctive voice and has the knack of owning each song he performs. The disc opens with his cover of Traffic’s “Heaven Is in Your Mind.” The focus is on the lyrics with Anton’s vocals dominating, which is a good thing. And for the final minute or so, his vocals are replaced with a trippy psychedelic journey. The second track on side one is Anton’s composition “Secretion of the Wafter,” a trippy song with swooping electronics, psych guitar, and Anton’s edgy vocals sounding a bit like Bauhaus. Side two opens with a flawless cover of Big Star’s “September Gurls.” And the disc closes with a gritty Krautrock interpretation of Bowie’s “Scary Monsters.” A total of 16 minutes of Anton crammed onto 7 inches of colored vinyl. Grab a copy while you can of this limited run.
