Title: Mean Love
Artist: Sinkane
Label: Dfa Records
Product Type: VINYL LP
UPC: 829732244519
Genre: Soul/R & B

2014 LP pressing with download code second album follow-up to his debut album 'Mars'. 300 units worldwide. This is truly universal soul music. It was recorded at the Rumpus Room in N.Y. & co-produced with long-time Sinkane collaborator & childhood friend, Greg Lofaro. From Ahmed Gallab's childhood in Sudan there is a Panas well as distinct horn and synth arrangements more common to East Africa. This background merges with the lessons learned from Ahmed's stints with obsessive craftsmen such as Caribou, Yeasayer and of Montreal. There are doses of West African slow-burners, surprise appearances of steel guitar arrangements and country-soul, a Noir Blaxploitation vibe & a newly found sweet falsetto voice reminiscent of Mean Love is an emotionally rich and generous soul album with a very welcoming appeal. The restless creative drive of Ahmed Gallab these past few years has led to a true breakthrough moment for the artist, and this album is a true reward for time well spent.
