Soft Hair – Soft Hair (Released 28th October)

£16.99 – LP & DL Code

 Soft Hair are Connan Mockasin and Sam Dust (LA PRIEST / Late Of The Pier). Their eponymous debut album is due for release via Weird World.

 The album’s recording took place over five years amongst the pair’s solo careers and outside lives. After the dispersion of Late Of The Pier, whom Connan supported on tour in 2009 (the first time the two met), Sam travelled in the Far East, Africa, Europe and elsewhere, spending time inventing his own instruments, producing and directing and re-emerging as LA PRIEST in 2015 with debut solo album ‘Inji’.

 Connan meanwhile released the albums ‘Forever Dolphin Love’ and ‘Caramel’ and toured the world extensively, working with artists such as James Blake, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Vince Staples.

 The songs on this album were written and recorded in a wide array of locations, using methods that neither Mockasin nor Dust had used previously, developed by the pair from the start of its creation. As a result the record gives the listener a view into an exotic world with a blend of familiar, unfamiliar and unconventionally attractive sounds.

 LP pressed on heavyweight black vinyl housed in a gatefold jacket with A3 poster and digital download code.
