Veteran San Diego-based dj and vocalist Gonjasufi (Sumach Valentine) debuted
with the dislocated pop songs of A Sufi and a Killer (Warp, 2010),
produced by Gaslamp Killer (William Bensussen).
The acid shuffle Kobwebz, the surreal Indian dance of
Kowboyz & Indians,
the garage gospel rave-up DedNd
and the anemic blues Ageing

vaudeville skit for anthemic piano figure at marching-band pace of
She Gone and the
parody of easy-listening muzak, replete with angelic backup vocals, of Sheep
redeem any indulgence and incompetence that may hurt the rest.

was vastly less creative, and a lot gloomier, if perhaps
a more personal statement, drenched in a claustrophobic atmosphere akin to that
of much psychedelic dub.
