A thorough and loving review of Tinariwen‘s Amadjar in The Young Folks writes that the LP might be “possibly their best” LP. The site begins by tracking the history of this nomadic Tuareg group, which has experienced war and famine over its long trajectory towards becoming the world’s premiere desert-rock collective. The review asks readers to bask in the album’s “brittle beauty, in the communal spirit it evokes, in the ‘unexpected shade and subtlety’ that emerges from each and every song to reward the close listener.” Go deep with The Young Folks here.
Amadjar is spending its second week at the top of the NACC World chart this week, and has entered the Top 20 at the NACC Radio 200. Thanks for the spins!
