After 6 years this release is finally making its return to vinyl, just as Sufi himself returns with his first new full LP in as many years. This staggering Warp Records debut from Gonjasufi came to the world in 2010, sounding like an unearthed wax-cylinder buried deep in the Southern California sand, soaked in the sounds of fifty years in pop-music history.
Featuring production from the heart of the Brainfeeder, Gaslamp Killer and Flying Lotus, A Sufi and a Killer is a molten-cosmic-brew of scorched psychedelia, glowing lo-fidelity funk, 21C beat science, fizzed-up psych-metal rock distortion, freaky-folk, Arabesque, woozy 70s soul and...well everything and nothing you could ever imagine spinning out of the stereo. At the twisted heart of these 20 tracks is Gonjasufi himself; deep-mystic, frazzled orator, cult-star in the making. A magical brain-mash of a record.
"One of the most fascinating slabs of hallucinogenic head-nod music to arise from Southern California's post-hip-hop vanguard. " - Pitchfork
