And today we return to another feature that I've done a few times before ... Kafka is a singer-songwriter from Burnley, U.K. (a bit north of Manchester), whose music has elements of power-pop and punk, among other things. His album Mysterious Skin is co-produced by Mark Jones, whose résumé includes work by Peter Gabriel, Moby Grape, and Blue Nile.
