Sumach Valentine aka Gonjasufi continues to display his singularly unique musical vision on MU ZZ LE, the San Diegan sometime yoga teacher's first full length LP since the stunning A Sufi & A Killer. This time round, he's turned the psychedelia up to the max, largely dispensing with his abstract influences in favour of a drowsy, hallucinogen influenced psych-pop stew. It's a good move. The sample-heavy, doped-up tracks veer from loose-limbed, jazz-flecked smokiness ("Timeout") and dub-laden fluidity ("Venom") to organ-heavy freakiness ("Rubberband") and super-distorted lo-fi reggae ("Blacksuit"), all the while coming on like the results of too many late nights flicking through long wave radio stations.
