Meet LA rapper-turned-singer Gonjasufi. His debut album “A Sufi and a Killer” is out now on the ever reliable Warp records. It’s a strange brew of Eastern-psychedelica, R&B, blues, soul, lo-fi, and hip-hop all sung with a sort of funky, drugged-out Tom Waits croak. Produced by notable vinyl-dedicated DJ and hair-enthusiast, The Gaslamp Killer.
If this sounds slightly intriguing to you, read my review of the album at the KEXP blog.
You can play Gonjasufi’s “A Sufi and a Killer” from the hip-hop preview rack soon.
