Last month, the Tuareg guitar wizard Mdou Moctar, a circa-2019 Stereogum Artist To Watch, showed up on a bunch of songs from Matt Sweeney and Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy’s long-awaited Superwolves, one of 2021’s best albums. On three of that album’s songs, Moctar and his band backed up Matt Sweeney and Will Oldham, and their sound meshed beautifully with that of those two great American indie rockers. On Friday, Moctar will release his own new album Afrique Victime, and he’s just dropped one of its tracks.
