Relax to Sinkane's Spacey Paradise Pop

Posted by on Wed, Feb 27, 2013 at 12:14 PM

(Crocodile) Relax to the spacey, soft-focus paradise pop of Sinkane—also known as multi-instrumentalist Ahmed Gallab of Columbus, Ohio, by way of Sudan—as persistent '70s-style funk lines noodle around blooming vocals and fluid percussion. Gallab has played with/in bands like Of Montreal and Yeasayer, and though some comparisons could be made, Sinkane leans more toward a "mellow beach spliff" style than the "torrential sheets of acid" bent his friends have been on recently. Also playing are Toro Y Moi (hazy, synth on ice—you read Trent Moorman's spirulina-coated interview with Chaz Bundwick last week, right?) and Dog Bite (the airy pop project of Phil Jones).

Thanks man, thanks. You know what though, water is okay, I just wish it was caffeine. Like the good old days of Sparks. Why add water, when you can make the kids stay up and buy more beer? That's just good marketing sense if you ask me, Tim.

Sparks is so good. I totally don't understand the first two records, really, but Kimono My House is incredible. I kind of fell off after Angst in My Pants, not for any reason, just that I felt I couldn't listen to more without the fear of becoming obsessed. Good friends swear by all of their material though, I believe it! Those guys are so weird and great!
