Connan Mockasin’s Forever Dolphin Love Album Is Out Now!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Connan Mockasin‘s debut album ‘Forever Dolphin Love‘ (packaged with a special bonus live session) is out today!

Written from start to finish one hot summer, while camped outside his parent’s church-like house in a tent. The album brims with the beauty and solitude of summer evenings, a miasma of psychedelic tangents, jazz interludes and echoing guitars which hum with a distant, haunting resonance. Indeed, it is so unique a first-time listener may have to listen to it again just to take it all in, so powerful is the spell it casts. But don’t just  take our word for it…

The Line of Best Fit - “It’s mesmerising, addictive and comforting, littered with playful  lyrics and serene melodies. This is a gorgeous record, as inspired as it is inspiring. A remarkable debut”

The Sunday Times – “Oh my, this is wonderful. Bizarre, certainly, but brilliant too” – 4*

Subba Cultcha – “A very impressive and hugely infectious release from Connan Mockasin” – 8/10

Drowned In Sound - “It is a strange, seemingly effortless record. Filled with drum driven fantasy romps and psychedelic lullabies, interspersed with jazz interludes. For the most part, you aren’t really aware of any songs. Everything segues into one mass of sound. There isn’t exactly a rush to go anywhere.” – 8/10

Addict Music – “Join Connan on the magical tour of his mind, I promise it’s a trip you’ll want to do again and again” – 4/5

Planet Notion – “Once it floats around your ears during the first few spins, ‘Forever Dolphin Love’ becomes an intriguing listen, a really exciting record”

The Music Fix – “For those willing to crack open the shutters, Mockasin will lead you down corridors of dark magic and unfathomable mysteries” – 7/10

Bow Legs – “This is outsider songwriting. Songs drift, start, stop, flex, reshape in transit: the effect is mesmeric” – 8/10

Rhythm Circus – “A sly wink at 60s experimentalists like Pink Floyd and The Beatles but with an up to date sense of modern psychedelia to rival MGMT”

Another Magazine - Loved

Trebuchet Magazine - ”Connan Mockasin has created a collection of tunes that stand up next to any of the finest psychedelic pop, beautifully conceived, masterfully played, and, above all, more original than anything released in many a long year”
