PMR Records’ Javeon McCarthy made his Human Drizzle debut in February 2012. ‘Lost Time’ is a memorably fraught piece of soulful bass music, and we enjoyed it very much indeed. Stardom seemed to beckon, but Mr McCarthy then disappeared – before returning last month with ‘Lovesong’. It’s a more straightforward record, and ‘Mercy’ is in a similar vein – both are disarmingly pop, albeit with the kind of squelchy kick drums and distorted vocal echoes so favoured by Julio Bashmore and Javeon’s other Bristolian label mates. We rather like it.
