Excellent frilly tishoumaren guitars, hypnotic rhythm section, awesome jams, gruff French vocals, (far better) Sarahan vocals, neat synths. The product is a really fun and fresh tishoumaren (African desert blues) record with post-punk and krautrock influences that absolutely shits on Tinariwen's or Mdou Moctar's 2017 redundant releases (old stuff is still solid though). These are great songs, I don't have much else to say about the record.

Great album!
At a time like this, scorching irony, not convincing argument, is needed.
