Imarhan - Temet - 2018 - Argelia

When Imarhan released their self-titled debut album in 2016, they entered a genre already awash with talent and exposure, but still managed to rise to the top and be heralded as the "new wave of Tuareg music" by Fact Magazine and The Guardian. It is with much anticipation that the Tamanrasset band Algeria has announced the details of their second album, Temet, due out on February 26 at City Slang.

Temet is a huge leap in production as well as creative for Imarhan. While his debut was anchored in the meditative tradition of the Blues Desert, Temet eclipses such notions, finding bounce and driving by mixing his sound with funk, fuzz, disco, and rock. This is not a novel concept for the band, since anyone who has seen them play will attest. There is a disparity between his emotional and thoughtful first album and the raucous and ecstatic live performance. And while Temet is decidedly more eclectic, the aesthetic wisdom and singular vision of his debut remain on display. Imarhan's experience as a touring band has reinforced the focus and meaning behind his music. Instead of traversing the desert, these nomadic travelers have globalized to reflect on today's struggles. "Temet" in Tamashek means "connections" and Imarhan uses it as an energetic alarm clock ... more credits released on February 23, 2018.
