London born Ahmed Gallab, a.k.a. Sinkane, releases his latest compilation dubbed with the title Lost Tapes. The album contains rare and unheard demos and previously unreleased music. Sinkane wanted to offer fans some relief during the pandemic. He was quoted on the decision of the release stating:
“ “I’ve written a lot of songs that haven’t made it on to an album for one reason or another. Sometimes I’ll go back to old hard drives and listen to see if I can revive one or two. I thought it would be fun to share some of these songs with you. Some are (still) unfinished, don’t have lyrics. Some you’ll recognize as demo versions. A couple are totally finished but haven’t seen the light of say (until now).
…You’re seeing how the sausage gets made. The imperfections, blips, wonky bits. Warts and all. There’s more where this came from, and maybe I’ll share more in the future. In the meantime, enjoy this mix.”
The album has been made available via Sinkane’s Bandcamp for a “pay-what-you-feel” price point.
