Ahmed Gallab has worked with Yeasayer, Caribou, Of Montreal, Born Ruffians and Eleanor Friedberger - he however has a solo project as well as Sinkane. DFA released his second record Mars earlier this week, which is a tropical/electronic record with a present African influence. Psychedelic pop jams, twisted with African rhythm and instruments. Think Yeasayer’s debut All Hour Cymbals with Of Montreal’s feel for weird pop, all drenched in Caribou production - he certainly was inspired by all bands he played with and mixes the best of these in an appealing, playful blend. Mars is out now via DFA - stream it below, as well as the video for album opener Runnin’.
