Editorial Reviews

Caramel boasts a unique brand of mutated, lustrous soul that was almost wholly self-recorded over a month in a Tokyo hotel room. Described by Clash Music as "a true cosmonaut of inner space," the album explores different regions of Mockasin's singular galaxy, guided by his truly adventurous songwriting that favors reconfigured pop structures with a skewed funk sensibility. If Caramel wasn't enough, Mockasin has also been writing more material for Charlotte Gainsbourg after penning the exquisite "Out Of Touch" for the actress/singer's 2012 mini-album, Stage Whisper.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best album of 2013 March 19, 2014
Format:Vinyl
A lush, layered exercise in yacht rock, 70's-80's R&B grooves and Syd Barret esque distortion psychedelia, Caramel is one of those rare albums that effectively draws upon the past to create an experience that feels fresh and more than the sum of its parts. Caramel is also one of those albums that possesses it's own idiosyncratic sonic vocabulary. It's a very weird album, and I've heard people liken it to Ariel Pink, which I feel is a fair comparison. Both Ariel Pink's work and Connan's are heavily informed by nostalgia for 70s and 80s FM hits.

In addition, this is an album for people who enjoy cohesive experiences. Connan wrote the album because he wondered what an album named "Caramel" would sound like. And I think the end product of that ambition lives up to its namesake. This is sexy, groovey music.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Perfect Album to Set the Mood April 14, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
My boyfriend and I consider ourselves to have highly eclectic musical tastes, so when we set a theme to our romantic life, not just any love song will do. We wanted an album to enrich our love-filled nights with passionate fire, while still soothing us with smooth falsetto vocals and jazzy melodies. We found just that in Conan Mockasin's Caramel. His gentle voice and classic instrumental back-up was tailor-made for those special nights-in with the one you love. So if your romantic evenings seem to be lacking in auditory magic, give this album a listen and let the romance commence!
