- Because Music, Phantasy Sound
Limited edition 2021 re-press of Connan Mockasin's classic 'Forever Dolphin Love' album on splatter 12" vinyl. Celebrating the 10th anniversary of the record.
"Dolphin glides casually through song and snippet, its construction almost elliptical, its effect amniotic. As such, its highlights seem to emerge after-the-fact, burrowing in while it's on and bubbling up later. Mockasin's a more ambitious songwriter than his sleepy demeanor would sometimes suggest, though-- the epic unravel of his tracks are proof enough of that. Ultimately, the ever-unraveling, mind-submerged Forever Dolphin Love reveals itself to be the work of a guy who's sounding small but dreaming big." - Pitchfork
Celebrating 10th anniversary of Connan Mockasin ’s both debut album “Forever Dolphin Love” & career, Phantasy and Because Music release new editions of long time out of stock “Forever Dolphin Love” & “Caramel” (2nd album) Lps. Exclusive Splatter 2021 Editions .
"It's been exactly a decade since Connan Mockasin's classic album, 'Forever Dolphin Love' was released as the first album on Phantasy. As such, this record holds huge significance for the label, evolving us beyond the singles of our first few years and into a full musical world that we truly believed in.
Part of our ethos is that music and the physical format should be affordable and accessible, so after seeing 'Forever Dolphin Love' sell for over £100 a copy on the second hand market, and given the occasion, we're delighted to announce a re-press of Mockasin's beguiling debut on limited-edition splatter vinyl."
