Tinariwen to release a five-track EP featuring previously unheard acoustic tracks recorded in the Joshua Tree desert
Available exclusively on vinyl and digitally, the Inside/Outside EP was recorded while they were working on Emmaar – released earlier this year.
Recorded in the Californian desert, Emmaar was one of Tinariwen’s darkest and most difficult albums of their career as the band were exiled from their troubled Malian homeland. Inside/Outside captures the moments of intimacy and solidarity in the shadows of the desert campfire, a sombre lament for a suffering homeland as the flames sawed in the wind and the embers paled and deepened.
Presented by Soundcrash, tickets to their Roundhouse performance on November 16 can be purchased here. Inside/Outside EP is released on November 17 on Wedge Records.
