|ALGIERS Self Titled Limited Vinyl LP
· Algiers release their self-titled debut album on Matador Records. Steeped in radical politics and deeply indebted to postpunk’s sonic trailblazing and gospel’s spiritual bloodletting, the album imbues neo-modernist hymns with caustic social sentiment and explosive noise.
· Algiers comprises singer / guitarist Franklin James Fisher (deemed “one of the most powerfully guttural vocalists in rock today” by SPIN), guitarist Lee Tesche, and bassist Ryan Mahan.
· From the militant stomp of ‘Remains’ to Fisher’s commanding presence on the gospel no wave blowout ‘Black Eunuch’, Algiers channels righteous fury into an incisive, innovative assault that Vice Noisey calls “intense… right on the beat of the current cultural climate.”
· A trio of émigrés of the American Deep South, now split between New York and London, Algiers synthesize their eclectic influences, from Nina Simone and PJ Harvey to Suicide and Public Enemy, into frightening new forms.
