Sealed brand new 12" from this NZ artist.
"I'm the Man, That Will Find You," the leadoff single from wobbly New Zealand weirdo Connan Mockasin's forthcoming Caramel (out November 4 in the UK and November 5 in the U.S.), comes to us encased in Jello, as Mockasin's trembling voice is pitch-shifted into pectin haze, doling out the song's gooey hook for what seems like dozens of times. His tireless search quickly turns into strange obsession: as its guitars quiver around the edge of consciousness, Mockasin blurts "I can wait a long time," in the "Cooper's Dream" cadence, his oozing infatuation taking on an otherworldly bent. Mockasin's fine 2011 effort Forever Dolphin Love seemed caught at the cusp of a dream, but there's something slightly nightmarish about "Find You", like finding out a few minutes too late about all those horse hooves in your dessert.
