Listen - Connan Mockasin - Forever Dolphin Love

Welcome, folks, to the delightful, slanted and enchanted world of Connan Mockasin. The New Zealand born, current London resident Mockasin makes beautiful, off-kilter music which subverts as it compels, challenges as it mesmerists, startles as it seduces, even drawing fans as diverse as Johnny Marr and Radiohead to Ed Banger chief and ex-Daft Punk manager Pedro Winter into its wide-eyed, childlike exploration into the final frontiers of pop music. It is all too rare, in this current climate of manufactured pop acts, grey over produced 'alternative' guitar music and press-fuelled mania for the next-big-thing, to hear something truly striking and original, but a strong case can most certainly be made for Connan to be a true pop auteur, taking his rightful place in a proud lineage which includes past mavericks such as Joe Meek and Brian Wilson, right through to current cult heroes like Ariel Pink's, Sufjan Stevens and John Maus.

Listen Hunx and His Punx - Too Young To Be In Love - Album

Debut studio album from Hunx And His Punx.

The band’s singles compilation "Gay Singles" (True Panther / Matador, 2009) has sold over 2000 copies on LP.

"Too Young To Be In Love" is the first fully-realized Hunx And His Punx album, and the group’s first for Hardly Art. It was recorded in New York City by Ivan Julian, one of the founding members of inimitable NYC punk legends Richard Hell And The Voidoids. This record was made in the same studio that one of Hunx's idols, Ronnie Spector, once recorded in.

“Deliciously trashy homoerotic pop” - Pitchfork

“Bogart is a vivid, alluring frontman with one thing on his mind” - The New York Times
