Phew, that’s another wait over. The wait being yesterday’s release of the Gonjasufi album, A Sufi and a Killer. I thought the album title referred to Gonja and his main production partner on this record, The Gaslamp Killer, but apparently not, it’s the two sides of the man, the peaceful tranquil yoga teacher, and then the somebody who would not hesitate to break a motherfucker off some, should it need to occur.
It’s a trippy record for sure, don’t get me wrong Gonja, this album woulda worked wonders on the set of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.
A batch of records that I ordered some five months back arrived yesterday too, one of them being the Black Comm album. Black to Comm is Marc Ricther, and his album Alphabet 1968 is a radio transmission from over yonder, static, glockenspiels, loops, and distant voices escaping into the atmosphere.
Also in the package was the Mulatu Astatke & The Heliocentrics collaboration on Strut. Yesss!
I’ve always got time for Jnerio Jarel, a man of many aliases. His Dr. Who Dat? guise was the one that dropped on my lap first, and I’m keeping tabs on him for sure now.
The ariel is also alert for James Blake.
