Indie-pop maestro Connan Mockasin releases his new album Jassbusters on Mexican Summer.
Following on from Forever Dolphin Love and Caramel, the similarly acclaimed Jassbusters has also drawn critical plaudits, from the likes of Q, Mojo, Sunday Times Culture and Uncut, which named it Album of the Month.
Stream ‘Charlotte’s Thong’ by Connan Mockasin below –
Here, the New Zealand multi-instrumentalist’s pitch-bending vocals are met by a retro production with laid back drums, long blues inflicted guitar solos and a smooth bass shimmer which lend the record a gently warped psychedelic feel.
This follows the release of the single “Con Conn Was Impatient” and a video clip with preview footage from Mockasin’s five-part melodrama film Bostyn ’n Dobsyn that accompanies the release of Jassbusters.
