Amoeba Review

11/04/2013

Entering Connan Mockasin's world requires you to realign your ears. Caramel begins disorientingly, like a classic 4AD single played on 33 speed. "Oh, what is this?" he asks seductively in a slowed-down voice on the outset of the title track, and we're still not sure. Like its namesake, Caramel unfolds slowly and sweetly, as the New Zealand singer's vocals move from shift-pitched low to high and nasal over guitars that sound like someone poured milk all over them. Like his Canadian spirit brothers Sean Nicholas Savage and Mac DeMarco, he's a crooner from another planet, warping his voice and music into concoctions that are vaguely reminiscent of singers of yore yet remain endearingly strange—take his five-part "It's Your Body" suite, for instance, made up of snippets of instrumentals both bizarre and beatific. But he's a pop songwriter at heart. "I Wanna Roll With You" is the humpiest lo-fi pop song this side of Ariel Pink. You're not sure what Connan Mockasin wants with you, but you're inclined to say "yes." Read More
