-valis Pick of the Week
After a week's absence, (due to heinous and unforeseen circumstances,) we're back with a new Pick. From Music City, Nashville, Tennessee, it's The Sufis! Evan Smith & Calvin LaPorte sail further into '67 with their sophmore release, Inventions, out now on Ample Play and Burger Records.
Consisting of 12 tracks, most in the just-longer-than-two-minute variety, they're fully into the Spirit of '67! Forced to be concise, they manage a remarkable range of sounds, textures, and efx. Interest never wanes as before you know it the next track starts. No time to wear out a welcome or bore your ears. File alongside Jacco Gardner's outing this year, and The Hidden Masters, too. (Which, come to think of it, The Sufis once were, pre-Idries.)
Vinyl & CD available via Burger. Get it.
You can listen to the archived stream here; or, hear it this Friday, on The Dead Man's Turn Me On, Dead Man show on Live365, where it's heard every Friday at noon eastern time, as well as Mr. Atavist's Sunrise Ocean Bender show, heard every Monday from 1 to 3 am eastern, on WRIR in Richmond, VA.
