Connan Mockasin's album Jassbusters. Available here on Rough Trade Exclusive Clear Colored LP with Bonus Exclusive Fold Out Poster, Standard LP and CD.

Connan Mockasin’s third album Jassbusters is an unclassifiable, unconventional affair that neither picks up from nor abandons the modes of 2013’s widely-embraced Caramel or its 2010 predecessor Forever Dolphin Love. Jassbusters foreshadows a five-part melodrama film titled Bostyn 'n Dobsyn, created by Mockasin, soundtracking the unpredictable narrative of the film in eclectic, electric ways. The album is sure to make turntables shimmer and shiver in its wake.

Jassbusters is the third full-length solo release from New Zealand-born Connan Mockasin. This eight-track unclassifiable concept album was the first he’s recorded with a band, and one that was created as a companion to the five-part melodrama motion picture Bostyn ’n Dobsyn, that he wrote and directed. Eerie at times, with a teacher-student relationship storyline, the new record carries on the evolution from 2013’s widely-embraced Caramel and its 2010 predecessor Forever Dolphin Love. His usual reverb sound has been anchored and evolved into something smoother, fuller, and funky as hell, especially when it comes to his new-found Arthur Russell-style electric vocals.
