Recommends: Connan Mockasin - Caramel

The album title says it all. Smoothest tunes from the Kiwi oddball. Warped pop that sounds like Hall & Oates on ludes, recording in a whale's stomach. Only in actual fact, it was laid down in a Tokyo hotel room over the course of a month, with a small parade of visitors. High probability that someone spiked the tea ceremony.

Connan nails it with incidental hits like the title track and the surreal soul of 'Do I Make You Feel Shy?'. Not to forget the 5-part odyssey 'It's Your Body'.

Sweet listening.
