Schober's Cabinet is a Canadian duo comprising Denis Stockhausen von Ulm (guitars, bass, organ, vocals) and Zach Ryl (percussion). It's In The Wrong Envelope is their debut album. I think fans of the early Pink Floyd will definitely like this album. It sounds a lot like the second Floyd album A Saucerful Of Secrets (1968). Schober's Cabinet used the original vintage instruments such as the typical sounding Farfisa organ, and some techniques of the late sixties like playing the guitar with a cigarette lighter and backward played tapes. At the time this kind of psychedelic music sounded unearthly and new, but in 2013 it sounds nostalgic and outdated. It just has a different starting point: in the sixties musicians discovered unexplored musical areas by creating new music, while currently it's an attempt to capture the atmosphere of far-off days. However, the album's title is very appropriate for the cover. They have made great efforts to sound like a sixties band, but the cover doesn't look typical at all for that era.
