Tinariwen - Amadjar

Record of the Week is the return of the Tuareg group Tinariwen, with Amadjar. Featuring guest appearances from Sun O)))’s Stephen O’Malley, Cass McCombs and the baddest seed Warren Ellis, who all add to proceedings unobtrusively with real care. The broad narrative is that the album was recorded on the road (true to the nomad spirit), on the two-week journey through Morocco and the Western Sahara. They pitched camp each night and recorded sketches of songs in a camper van-turned-mobile studio. Lush flowing feel to it, songs of great spirit. 

+ Limited first pressing 2LP edition comes with 28 page road trip booklet.
