Connan Mockasin Forever Dolphin Love on LP + Download
Mexican Summer is delighted to announce the release of Connan Mockasin's debut LP Forever Dolphin Love for the first time ever in North America. Originally released in 2010, Forever Dolphin Love remains a vital introduction to the strange and fantastical universe of Connan Tant Hosford. Following its release Connan enjoyed a flurry of critical and artistic praise from the likes of David Byrne, Johnny Marr, Blood Orange's Dev Hynes and Charlotte Gainsbourg, with whom Connan is an ongoing collaborator.
There's a truly mercurial quality cast over the album, which is full of subtle idiosyncrasies that gradually reveal themselves after repeated listens. "It's Choade My Dear" and "Faking Jazz Together" are perfect slices of light-headed psych pop, constructed around spidery hooks, pitter-patter percussion and slow, sinuous grooves. The title track acts as the album's centerpiece - an ambitious suite that clocks in at over ten minutes; slithering through funk filled interludes and lush passages into one of the album's most frantic and memorable hooks.
