Editorial Reviews

Known as the touring multi-instrumentalist for Of Montreal, Caribou and Yeasayer, Ahmed Gallab is finally branching out on his own with Mars. The album is dense with deep, polyrhythmic grooves that refer as much to early 70s underground soul as it does Ahmed s home country Sudan. It s a 21st-century party record that swoons with its kinetic catchiness.

Format: Audio CD
Sinkane's music exhibits the woozy freeform of someone who has worked with the likes of Yeasayer, Born Ruffians, and of Montreal, which he has.

Sinkane AKA Ahmed Gallab is the New York-based Sudanese-born son of two college professors and "Mars", his sophomore album mixes Sudanese Pop, Rock, Funk, and Jazz to good effect. The falsetto-sung African Funk "Runnin'" opens the collection. "Jeeper Creeper" is quivery Dubby Funk drenched in African rhythmic guitars. "Lady C'mon" is dreamy Afrobeat-ish with vocodered vocals. Similar is the Jazzy "Making Time" with a guitar solo by Twin Shadow's George Lewis Jr.

"Warm Spell" sustains the chilled vibe with a gently rhythmic groove. "Lovesick" embeds his soft croon deep in the Funky rhythm, becoming almost a part of the lush instrumentation. Title track "Mars" is a loosely structured Jazzy instrumental meandering with flute and piano, and closing cut the tender "Caparundi" is quivery Bluesy Indie Rock, a lengthy piece featuring African horn ensemble NOMO.

Every bit as eclectic as his musical pals.
