The Sufis - Inventions

Calvin Laporte and Evan Smith
While Nashville’s The Sufis are oft called revivalists and you can hear heavy influences of The Beatles throughout their records, this is more than a revival, it is a re-invention of psych pop. 
Calvin Laporte says that he ‘wanted to write concise pop songs, each with a unique and particular quality.’ 
That mission is accomplished as each song wafts of originality with expansive orchestral sounds and experienced musicianship. Trippy Harrisonesque vocals match the music perfectly and the lyrics are a kaleidoscope of pictures. Each song, under three minutes packs hooks and loose jammy riffs into concise songwriting. These guys are the real deal.
