ALBUM REVIEW - MU.ZZ.LE

[Gonjasufi - MU.ZZ.LE]


If you've listened to anything from California (now living in Nevada) artist Gonjasufi before you know your in for a treat. His newest album, MU.ZZ.LE, is a slightly experimental electronic/pop/rock record that certainly wont be overstaying it's welcome as its only 25 minutes long. First impressions with this album is the music seems to be moving away from the total experimentation feel of his past work, thus creating a more deliberate, meaningful feeling to his music.

MU.ZZ.LE has an easy going, funky, grungy feel throughout most of the album, as is evident with tracks such as "White Picket Fence", the intro song with muddy, sad sounding vocals that fit just right. Another fitting track is "Feedin' Birds" that sounds like a throwback to an earlier time of music with its low-fi vocals and old school guitar riff. Some songs still have that super experimental vibe with tracks like "Venom" and "Timeout", where the artist was seemingly allowing himself to have a much higher degree of creative freedom to play with sound.

Overall, this album was really impressive, and other than a track or two that felt slightly out of place, this album didn't disappoint and is going to be something I excitedly introduce people to (Then feel bad when they "just don't feel it man"). So if you already like Gonjasufi, the album wont disappoint, and if you've never heard of him before, I recommend giving the embedded song a listen, its my personal favorite.

  9. This song is great- it especially rings true in our era of Obama nickel-and-dime-ing the American people just so he can have dinner parties with his communist pals.

  10. Some tracks really did feel 'out of place', however I'm liking this. By the way, listen to LJones! One of my favourite artists ever, and he has free EP's.

  14. Anything with an old-school 3d cover has to be good. Ok, well it doesn't have to be, but it should be.
