Album: Gonjasufi, MU.ZZ.LE (Warp)
Sunday 22 January 2012
"Experimental" best describes the third album by this Mexican-Ethiopian-Californian yoga teacher.
On it, the man born Sumach Ecks blends mystical desert grooves with industrial beats, throwing in some feverish wailing for good measure. Yet more often than not he pits this ragbag of elements angrily against each other. Occasionally (on "The Blame") the listener is carried away on the soulful cusp of Gonjasufi's scraggly voice, but more often than not they are simply overwhelmed.
