Nice little stomper,

This review is from: Nomad (Audio CD)
A fascinating album.A fusion of African beats and rhythms with Bombinos electric guitar and haunting vocals.I would guess that the band is sensational as a live act .The album has a live feel about it ,it's sensitively produced so as maintain the immediacy and rawness of a live show .Think of Crazy Horse on camels rather than Dire Straits in the sand.Bombino is apparently inspired by Marc Knoppfler but there are riffs redolent of Bob Marley too .The tracks are fairly short but the whole album stomps through confidently and comes to a satisfying finish. its the soundtrack for a summer barbecue or a for a long drive ,Take a risk and get it .
