==== PARK AVE CDs: Orlando's Finest Music Emporium! ====

We Belong, is the eighth studio album from Sinkane, a band led by multi-instrumentalist Ahmed Gallab. And like much of Sinkane's previous releases, it resists genre. It's pop. It's funk. It's electronic. It blends the gritty punk newness of a 70s and 80s New York with the steady, foundational soul of the rhythms of his native Sudan. Though We Belong comes deep into the catalog of a long career, it also resists stagnation. It moves and travels-through words and eras, through emotion and healing. Gallab calls this album his "love letter to Black music," and each track pulses with the energy of different eras and forms: the gospel-soaked "Everything Is Everything," the dreamy, Quiet Storm-influenced Afro-beats of "Rise Above," the 70s-funk of "We Belong" and it's Sly Stone influence, the Stevie Wonder-edged "Another Day"-they tell a story about Black music and Black people. A1. Come Together A2. Another Day (ft. STOUT & Bilal) A3. Rise Above A4. Invisible Distance (ft. Tru Osborne) A5. Everything is Everything (ft. Tru Osborne) B1. We Belong (ft. STOUT) B2. How Sweet Is Your Love B3. Liming B4. Home (ft. Hollie Cook) B5. The Anthem (ft. STOUT)
