Success has been good to the Tuareg band Tartit. Though the group doesn't take as many liberties with their music as their compatriots Tinariwen do, they achieve a similar effect: When you listen, it's as if you're standing in the desert with them, breathing deep and watching a distant horizon. The songs unspool with a kind of stateless grace, first revealing themselves in repeated choruses and swirling guitar, and then layering these effects on top of each other to create a kind of cumulative calming effect. Recorded in a mobile studio brought to the Sahara expressly for the purpose.
