TRACKS OF THE WEEK
It's always a treat to get a new release from the undisputed kings of the Desert Blues. Elwan is their 7th release and was recorded between Morocco and the deserts of Joshua Tree as a result of the continuing conflict in their native Saharan homeland. This is reflected musically in Nànnuflày, employing the help of Mark Lanegan and Kurt Vile, it bears all the hallmarks of the Touareg band's Blues sound but a lot more stark. I'm going to treat myself to a mint tea and indulge.
Fionn Regan - "The Meetings of the Water" (2017)
This came out last week and I've been obsessed ever since. 'The Meetings of the Water" is out 14th April 2017 and is the Irish singer/songwriters fifth studio album. If the other tracks are as good as this I'll be delighted. The video stars Cillian Murphy (“Peaky Blinders,” Batman Begins, Inception) in a creepy midnight drive that manages to keep your attention by making your imagination run wild.
Son Volt - Back Against the Wall (2017)
