Sinkane’s Life & Livin’ It is a fascinating blend of genres, indicative of what Ahmed Gallab has been working towards throughout his decade-long career in making music. It’s a mix of buoyant Afropop, jazz, and rock, made with an ear that has heard these sounds appropriated in projects like Vampire Weekend, Caribou, and Yeasayer alongside Gallab’s own rise. We’ve posted about “U’Huh” and “Telephone,” and today the whole album is streaming in full via NPR. Listen to it below.
Life & Livin’ It is out 2/10 via City Slang.
