The musical arms race among Touareg guitar bands to see who can rock heaviest and hardest hit new heights on Tamikrest’s fourth bone-shaking album, Kidal. Blazing with a righteous intensity, the heft and power illustrate just how West African desert blues has muscled-up since Tinariwen first came trailing clouds of nomadic glory out of the Sahara all those years ago. A Top of the World in #127.
