Tamotaït (Glitterbeat Records)

Tamikrest By Ishida Masataka (4)
Tamikrest Tamotaït (3500)

The fifth album from Tamikrest not only riffed and rocked as powerfully as we have come to expect, but took them into spacey, psychedelic moods that had our reviewer suggesting that if Tinariwen were the Beatles of West African desert rock and Songhoy Blues the genre’s answer to the Clash, then Tamikrest might just be the Saharan Pink Floyd.
