The Sufis: No Expression

"The Sufis hail from Nashville," says AllMusic, "but they have no country in their sound at all." Instead, says the website:
they sound like they've been lifted straight from Carnaby Street circa 1965, or like they were the house band on Shindig, or maybe recorded for Voxx in 1985. Basically, they are garage psych revivalists through and through, right down to the 12-string guitars, trippy backing vocals, and songs about weird characters, breakups with groovy chicks, and wallflowers.
I am not sure No Expression takes me back to Carnaby Street, but it's nice to choose a contemporary song occasionally.
