Maybe you’ve already read this month’s edition of Loud And Quiet (No. 53 – Oct 2013), featuring Connan Mockasin as our cover star, on account of his second record, ‘Caramel’.

It’s a record that Mockasin, born in a small beachside town in New Zealand, wrote and recorded in a Japanese hotel room as he explored what the smooth confectionary means to him. The result is a loose LP of easy listening that pulls in funk, soul and space pop, as you can see from this track, ‘Do I Make You Feel Shy?’.
