The SUFIS self titled debut is so brilliant that I’m fairly certain that I can’t formulate the words to do it justice’
The Active Listener blog.

The Sufis, are local sound engineers and extremely adventurousThe band is composed of Calvin Laporte (Lead and Harmony Vocals, Bass, Guitar, Tambourine, Harpsichord, Piano, Farfisa Organ,) Jay Smith (Lead and Harmony Vocals, Guitar, Harmonica, Bass,) Evan Smith (Lead and Harmony Vocals, Drums, Piano,) Jon Kemmerer (Flute, Clarinet, Bansuri) and Dylan Simon (Farfisa Organ, Vocals.)

Inspired by psych-garage-rock and roll music including baroque and mix sounds as well as all sorts of fun gadgets, echoing choirs and of course an inner feeling that you could probably live permanently in 70 years in the intoxication of drugs. Take the track ‘Sri Sai Flora‘ and you will quickly realize these spiritual moments.

The rock band from Nashville, TN will release their album in 3 formats, CD, download and vinyl. Be sure to grab the album in any format from the Cornorshop store online!
