Soft Hair is a collaboration between Connan Mockasin and Sam Eastgate. Mockasin has always weirded me out a bit, but "Relaxed Lizard" is a slick, infectious track. This it he first I've heard from Eastgate since he released Fantasy Black Channel with Late of the Pier. I'm sure he's been around, though. Soft Hair is out now.
My coworker John tipped me off about this release. I wasn't surprised to learn Helado Negro spent time touring with Devendra Banhart, because they have a very similar vocal tone, which probably makes them best friends. His new album, Private Energy, is out now and it's a real treat.
