I noticed the other day that my toes were cold. This may seem a rather weird way to start a post on a music website, but those of you whose musical moods change with the seasons know exactly what I’m hinting at. Chances are that you are no longer pining for the 90-plus BPM sound that populated your eardrums this past summer. Let me give you a taste of the sound that your ear holes may be craving right about now in the form of producer Mocky.
His sound is one that evokes long lost memories and longing for adventures you have never taken all at the same time. It’s as though Wes Montgomery, Kruder & Dormeister and Jamiroquai all got together an spawned him from their overly creative thoughts. Listening to the tracks below from his latest Saskamodie, for example, puts in my mind all things Sesame Street, kicking leaves in Central Park and cruising up the California coast, the latter being something I have never done. But I shall. And when I do, Mocky will be my constant companion.
