If it seems you are seeing Tinariwen’s name with more regularity these days, it’s because you are. In addition to this year’s Emmaar lp, recorded in Joshua Tree, California, and lengthy Western tours, the group just saw the reissue of their albums Amassakoul and Radio Tisdas Sessions — both for the first time on vinyl, via Light In The Attic Records.
The group’s story continues October 7th with the release of the five song acoustic EP, Inside / Outside Joshua Tree Acoustic Sessions. Recorded in Joshua Tree while the band were working on Emmaar, Tinariwen would jam nightly, both in the house and outside around a campfire. First taste, below.
