Songhoy Blues 2

More than another feel-good hit to see the week through, Songhoy Blues‘ latest single “Bamako” seeks to dispel a common stereotype. Heavy on the funk and positivity, this single sets aside the standard images of poverty and war in the group’s African homeland, and shows us that going out on a Friday night is a tie that binds us all. This cut is from their forthcoming record Résistance, which enlists the helping hands of Iggy Pop and Elf Kid, and is out June 16th on Transgressive.  Listen below.
