Earlier this year, Gonjasufi (Sumach Eck) released an intoxicating album on Warp produced by Flying Lotus (among others). The title A Sufi and a Killer is very apt insomuch as it encourages the image of two very different sides of Sumach's personality if not his music. The music is almost like a melting pot of references from wailing vocals reminiscent of Al Green to some Hindi Chants but it rarely feels forced, it's probably no coincidence that the music these vocals travel over often sounds intensely psychedelic. Have a listen to one of the tracks on YouTube here. Go on.
