TVD Vinyl Giveaway: The Sufis (s/t)

Hey dudes, there’s a great new album that I’m in love with from a brand-new psychedelic outfit from Nashville called The Sufis and I want to put a vinyl copy of their debut on your turntable too.

It comes out on July 3rd on Cornershop’s Ample Play Records. The Sufis demo was handed off to the Cornershop guys from another Nashville psych band that I love called The Paperhead, and they knew straightaway that they wanted to release this album. Cornershop states:

“The Sufis’s album was so instant, that we knew instantly we had to put it out on Ample Play. It’s incredibly adventurous and memorable. They record using old analogue recording equipment and effects, some of which they have rebuilt from scratch. The musicianship on the record is stunning.

We also love the fact that the only show they played (that we’re aware of prior to recording the album) is where they set themselves up in the middle of a large room and arranged their speaker/amps in all four corners. They had the audience in a circle around them. Part gig, part happening and part experiment. This is a group with ideas, with psychedelic ideas.”

So for now, dig a taste of The Sufis psych magic and then enter to win the vinyl below!

To enter to win a fresh piece of Sufis vinyl for your turntable, just post below with your favorite psych jam. Sound fair? And to make it extra fair, we will also accept European entries. Good luck! Winner will be chosen on June 19th. 

(And if you don’t win, you can grab a copy here.)

    this may sound too “simple” or “cliche”, but my fav psych jam is a live 1968 version of Interstellar Overdrive from Pink Floyd. I REALLY get lost in it everytime I hear it.

  • aj mack

    by far, my favorite psych jam is the jam in song “Halleluwah”  by “CAN” the song has such a great beat and the live version in 1971 is just as good. Listen and enjoy.

  • whereforawhile

    The organ in this is fantastic. And i know its over-used, but I Am The Walrus by the Beatles is fantastic.

    • whereforawhile

       @whereforawhile Whoops, I said fantastic twice. Lets go with ‘Wonderful” for describing I Am The Walrus.

  • gladhips

    Does this count?  Wale Numa Lombaliya by the Rail Band.  It’s on The Rough Guide To Psychedelic Africa.

    • BBiB

       @gladhips Of course it does!

  • Shaun C

    I’m now into the awesome: “Mind Daze” by Psychic Ills.
     
    The video for the song is so… dreaming

    The Sufis sound great!  My favorite psych jam is “On The Road” by the Scottish group N.S.U. — it’s on their (only) album: “Turn On, Or Turn Me Down”

  • Goatlung

  • Tepe Rodrigo

    Acid Mothers Temple did a killer set in NYC recently… I suppose there were probably separate “songs”, but it all played out as one extremely awesome 1.5 hour jam.

    Here’s a french favorite: Les Roche Martin-“Tu as peur du bruit”

  • http://ed.alphatester.com/ edised

    Death Valley 69 by Sonic Youth, although they’re not considered as a psych band, this is psychedelia at its best! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9k0dJEkzXc4
     

  • Dave Cambbridge

    Its All Too Much – The Beatles/George Harrison in their full psych mode ( and not so obvious as Tomorrow Never Knows!) Love The Sufis
     

  • Ian Baird

    For me it got to be Can – Mother Sky now thats a sike jam

     
    Thumbs up for The Sufi’s as well sounds like a mind bender
