- I'm The Man, That Will Find You by Connan Mockasin

When I first started spinning this new Connan Mockasin single I wasn't sure if I was playing it at the right speed, and I thought it was a cover of some classic soul song. In actual fact it isn't a cover and the reason I thought I'd heard it before was that I had...on Mockasin's most recent album. I should really have known it was at the right speed, but all the vocals are pitched up Chipmunk-style, that's my excuse.
It does sound like it was written by Prince 25 years ago and then repurposed into woozy, wibbly psychedelic syrup by Ariel Pink, though. And this is a good thing. In fact I'd go so far as to say that this is the best single that's come out all year. You should check out the sexy video too, if you dare.
On the other side is 'She Lives In My Lap'. It's also warped psychedelic soulpop with the Prince and Ariel Pink vibes continuing, even more of a sex-funk feel than the A side, verging on Rick James-esque self-parody in places. It's entertaining enough but silly and slightly overlong and it lacks a decent melodic hook, but that doesn't matter either way because the A side is the reason you need this record.
