Connan Mockasin.

It’s easy to become obsessed with this talented Kiwi. His slightly haunting vocals, and silly, yet ridiculously catchy lyrics, will have you lost for words in a psychedelic dream whirlpool. 

Check out a brilliant title track from his solo debut album ‘Forever Dolphin Love.’

‘Meeting Waterboy’–Mink Mussel Creek

This isn’t really a proper post, in the sense of writing a well thought out review, this is me talking of a bangin’ tune.

Mink Mussel Creek. They’re a newish Australian band and include Kevin Parker and Nick Albrook of Tame Impala. The track ‘Meeting Waterboy’ is absolutely brilliant. With the length of 6:51 it takes on a ‘Sea Within A Sea (The Horrors)’ turn halfway; evolving from a chillin’ time with those Cream-sque guitars that are only the norm when a band involves Tame Impala members (probably not a good thing to compare side projects of bands, but whatever) then surprising you and turning into an epic piece of music complete with Nick screaming into the microphone.

Just listen and tell me what you think.
