Seeing him live and then relistening to the album front to back made me appreciate the diversity of sounds, moods and genres Sinkane mashes up in a single recording. My rating one year later jumps from a solid 70 to a stellar 85.

With its odd juxtaposition of old timey county steel guitar and neo soul, love lorn lyrics, 'Galley Boys' will catch many off guard with its catchiness.

A fun and overall uncompromising album with lots of beachy, tropical sounds and grooves, varied instrumentation and smooth falsettos. There is definitely nothing new or surprising here, but this collection of tracks just feels good after a long day.

Sinkane delivers a cool, funky island pop album with delightful melodies and dreamy compositions. Its a fun album, with just enough subtle experimental sounds incorporated and string work that compliments the easy to love vibe.
