Kulu Shi Tamaam!

Debrrrs,

I cannot get this song (U'huh) out of my head. I listen to it on repeat almost daily. The only thing better is the video!

Addictive

RiouKyaro,

Sinkane' music is addictive, plain and simple. It's at once worldly and personal, and, for lack of a better word- funky. There are glimmers of pop, Afro-rock, electronica, and soul, that he manages to meld together with dizzying perfection. And his voice is flexible enough that he sounds at home in whatever sound, or mixture of sounds that he's putting out. And that's as true with this release as it is with his previous ones.

About Sinkane

Sinkane is an alias of Ahmed Gallab, a recording artist who sings and plays numerous instruments (drums, bass, guitar, keyboards, et al.). His percussion-heavy style of music draws from a wide range of influences, most noticeably free jazz (e.g., Pharoah Sanders) and shoegaze (e.g., My Bloody Valentine). Born in London, Gallab also lived in Sudan for several years before he and his family moved to the United States. He made his debut in May 2008 on Emergency Umbrella Records with the EP Color Voice; the same year, he toured as the drummer of Caribou and Of Montreal. A self-titled album was released in May 2009. He later signed to DFA -- an ideal home for his trippy hybrid sound -- and released a second album, Mars, in November 2012, following it up with the eclectic Mean Love in 2014. In 2016, Gallab entered the Sonic Ranch Studios in El Paso to record his fifth album. The resulting Life & Livin' It, which drew inspiration from life's joys and struggles, appeared at the beginning of 2017. ~ Jason Birchmeier
