Sinkane: How We Be

Sinkane's "How We Be," Poolside resurrects The Pool, Polygrains' debut and more in the music we tweeted this week

DFA artist Sinkane may now be best known as the William Onyeabor stand-in for the Atomic Bomb Band—the group performing the reclusive Nigerian singer’s tunes—but Sudanese-born Sinkane, whose real name is Ahmed Gallab, has contributed to bands spanning Yeasayer to Of Montreal. He made a name for himself over the years with solo hits like “Jeeper Creeper,” and this September he’ll release the 10-track album Mean Love. With his vibrant but soothing voice, Sinkane continues to throw out funky jams, and songs like “How We Be” have us looking forward to the full release.
