Sinkane: “Jeeper Creeper”
The first track from Sinkane’s upcoming album, Mars, is called “Jeeper Creeper.”
Gallab recorded the track himself, on his laptop, using Ableton Live. Though he usually plays and records all instruments himself, for “Jeeper Creeper,” Gallab enlisted the help of some friends: Ira Wolf Tuton and Jason “Jaytram” Trammell (both of Yeasayer) are on bass and drums, respectively; Oliver Chapoy (Shai Hulud, Helado Negro) plays the twisting and turning, reverb-drenched guitar; and Kathryn Fink provides the seductive voice in the background. Gallab plays guitar, keys, percussion, and drums.
Listen to “Jeeper Creeper.”
It's got a deep groove tied to a 1970s vibe, some African-style sway, some Detroit funk, some Prince attitude, and probably a bunch of other stuff I'm missing. It’s all good, and promises an excellent album to come.
