Thanks to reader, Linden Renz, I’ve spent the day de-compressing in my hyperbolic chamber while jamming to Group Inerane and the sound of their African psychedelic rebel music (is there any other kind?). According to their bio on the Sublime Frequences website, the record is “the sound of the Tuareg Guitar Revolution sweeping across the Sahara Desert, inspired by the rebel musicians that started this music as a political weapon used to communicate from the Libyan Refugee camps in the 1980s and 1990s.” As I haven’t spent much time in Libyan Refugee Camps nor the Sahara, I’ll just have to take their word for it. My brains are still too addled from SXSW to think coherently. I’ll have some wrap-up coverage tomorrow and Friday. In the meantime, allow me to offer this sacrifice of African guitar pop to the blog Gods.
