After stints as a touring member of Of Montreal and Yeasayer, this year Ahmed Gallab released his first full-length, Mars, under the name Sinkane, synthesizing dusty funk and the talk-box squawks of early Funkadelic. Lead single "Runnin'" should have been a song of the summer, and live Sinkane's full band offers extended arrangements of most of the album cuts, fleshed out with horns and emphasizing jangly guitar psychedelia. Fellow DFA flag-bearers !!! headline the night.
