MP3: Autobahn by Sinkane

Sinkane is the new project by Ahmed Gallab, previously involved in such bands as Sweetheart and Pompeii, This Morning.

Like Ahmed’s heritage (dude was born in Sudan, family chased out of the country because his dad was a journalist and didn’t agree with the government in charge, moves to Boston, moves to Kent OH, moves to Columbus OH, and some other steps in between), this music has a rich diversity that is an intense listen. Equally inspired by acts like Do Make Say Think and Mice Parade, the music also takes on great tribal, worldly turns that would make his ancestors proud.

As we get close to 2008, add Sinkane to the “bands to watch” list for the new year.
