Witness the world’s first absurdist melodrama as Connan Mockasin premieres part one of his film Bostyn ‘n Dobsyn, featuring material from his new concept album ‘Jassbusters’, the follow up to 2013’s critically acclaimed album ‘Caramel’.

The Spaceland Presents & Desert Daze event will see Connan unveil Jassbusters to the world, an idiosyncratic band of high school music teachers fronted by Mr. Bostyn - the ageing guitarist who plays the starring role in the accompanying film. Connan and his band will round off the night with a live performance

Connan Mockasin
Connan Mockasin
Whether bending genres or collaborating with artists like James Blake, MGMT, and Charlotte Gainsbourg, Connan Mockasin has always maneuvered in mysterious ways. After touring with the likes of Radiohead and Neil & Liam Finn (Crowded House), the R&B surrealist continues assembling a cult around his theater, nay spectacle, of life. Jassbusters is Connan Mockasin’s third album and first in five years.
An unclassifiable, unconventional album 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. Jassbusters soundtracks the unpredictable narrative of the film in eclectic, electric ways.
