He’s an enigma. That’s what most journalists say. Or at least that’s what they surrender to after a gallant (and likely lengthy) effort of trying to describe or categorize someone like Connan Mockasin. But there’s reason for the surrender. The New Zealand-raised, London-residing musician made Forever Dolphin Love, released two years ago, at the bequest […]
There are figurative artists who represent the emotional state of the subject with bodily imperfections, disturbing us with just how real our human bodies can be. The artist, seeking to imbue their deeper understanding of the human condition and form, waves every hair follicle or pucker of skin like a flag of this dramatic realism.

Most young fashion labels – even less mainstream ones – adhere to prevailing trends and silhouettes in varying degrees, and while this is hardly reprehensible (in most cases), it creates an environment where fewer and fewer designers are actually pushing the limits.
Kathi Wilcox is here anchoring it all in her subtle and precise bass and Carmine Covelli drumming holds and melts it all together and, while Kathleen Hannah does that Kathleen Hannah thing that make it impossible not to pay attention to her, Sara Landeau’s shredding echoes The Buzzcocks, The Pixies’ Joey Santiago and everything garage and intense in-between. Adding to that Kenny Mellman swirling keyboards (and brilliant vocal interventions) make it all the even more real.
