So I’m sure you all remember my startling discovery that Gonjasufi, who up until a week ago I thought only had one album out, actually has 4 albums under the name “Sumach” that predate his “debut” album A Sufi And A Killer. I’ve been checkin these albums out over the past week or so, and usually I like to take longer than that to get a good feel for stuff, but I figured I didn’t wanna keep y’all hangin too long, so I’ll go ahead and post up a couple of tracks that I’ve found particularly moving. I’m just gonna do the first 2 albums here, and then I’ll come back with a Part 3 with the other 2.
The first album, called Dead Midget On Stilts (Crutches) is pretty fuckin gritty. I’m not sure who’s doing production on it, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Sumach himself was taking care of that duty, especially because there are a fair amount of instrumental tracks on the album. It’s really cool though, I totally dig it. Unfortunately, I can’t seem to upload MP3s to this shit, so here are the only 2 streamable clips I found on the internet from this album. They give a pretty good impression.

The next one’s called Garlikillz and I think it sounds pretty different from that first one. The sound has more clarity in general I think, and you get some kinda faster tempo, higher energy songs than are on that first album. I’m afraid I’m stuck in the same predicament as before on this one, there’s almost no examples of this stuff on the internet, but here are the ones I could find. They’re real good.

Stay tuned for Part 3, I still haven’t even started listening to those other two albums yet, so I’m not sure what to expect. I’m really enjoying seeing the Gonjasufi style I’m familiar with emerge out of this hazy abyss of Sumach albums though. I hope you all are diggin it too. Seeya soon!
