I finally found Vieux Farka Touré's debut album. Not that this will mean much to most of you, but obviously he's the sun of Malian guitarist Ali Farka Touré. I've been looking for this album all year, and finally managed to find it. It's pretty damn good, I have to say. One song, "Diallo
," especially stands out so far. Great stuff.
I also just got Keren Ann's self-titled CD, which I haven't finished listening to yet but which seems fairly good, and Calexico's The Black Light.
I am loving
the collaboration CD with Iron & Wine, btw. Damn, that's good.
