MP3: Sinkane

Trotting drum, warbling psychedelic guitar, gurgling waves from the bass, and reflective synth lines-- this is exactly what you should be hearing at the end of the week. Echoing and cheekily turning into itself, this is the latest from Sinkane, multi-instrumentalist Ahmed Gallab of Yeasayer. Arcing through every sense, "Jeeper Creeper" is astonishingly full, complex and ridden with necessary grooves. Imagine Django Reinhardt, boiled down and infused with melted down electronics. The Sudanese-born Sinkane twiddles with an Eastern zen mentality and beefs it up to modernity in tantric turns-- lush and buoyant vocals urging us to "Seek the idea". Far from overworked, it is an expanse of total enjoyment. I can guarantee you won't be able to listen just once.

Accomplished even at the young age of 19, the phenom has provided instrumentation for live performances with Born Ruffians, of Montreal and Caribou. His solo album, Mars is forthcoming. Sinkane is currently on tour with Eleanor Friedberger and Caribou Vibration Ensemble.
