On Life & Livin’ It, Sinkane’s sound is, more than ever, that of a democratic band. Supporting its predecessor, Mean Love, Gallab and his musicians toured 166 shows in 20 countries, and this new album retains the immediacy of a live set. The highlife bluster and catchy hooks of Life & Livin’ It are sweet as taffy, like a bright sunburst of positivity that could melt ice. With production spotless from front-to-back, no instrument trips another’s heels.

Life and Livin’ It is the new album from Sinkane, the album is full of talent and different influences, but are we Lovin’ it? Sinkane is the alias of London born, Sudanese Ahmed Gallab, a t who draws his influence from a myriad of sources, from jazz and shoegaze to life experience itself. This album is titled as such, Life and Livin’ It is a tribute to life itself; its ups and downs, its joys and its struggles.

Life & Livin' It confronts the struggles and conflicts of our current times, but does so without giving in to cheap sloganeering and posturing, focusing instead on what really matters overall: the human condition and finding hope even in the seemingly most hopeless of times.

Sinkane (born Ahmed Abdullahi Gallab c. 1983 in London, England) is a Sudanese-American musician who blends krautrock, prog rock, electronica, free jazz and funk rock with Sudanese pop. He is signed to City Slang Records. Born to college professors in London, he lived in Sudan, then moved to the US when he was five, and lived for some time in Ohio On 6 March 2017 Sinkane made their television network debut on Conan.

Rather than develop his sound further on Life & Livin' It, Gallab seems content to coast with it for a while. And in many respects, that's not a bad thing, especially on the lead single "U'Huh. It contains all the elements that have made his music so engaging up to now: Afro-beat cadences, funky guitar licks, and his own soulful falsetto. In addition, it emits unrelentingly good vibes delivered with real groove, which makes it a wonderful antidote to uncertain times, and an early contender for a summer's anthem

A decade ago, in an instantly notorious New Yorker piece called A Paler Shade Of White, the critic Sasha Frere-Jones wrote sadly about how, as he saw it, indie rock had abandoned any sense of rhythm. Frere-Jones wrote about going to see Arcade Fire, when that band was at its most anthemic, and he wrote about what he didn’t hear: What I really wanted to hear, after a stretch of raucous sing-alongs, was a bit of swing, some empty space, and palpable bass frequencies - in other words, attributes of African-American popular music.
