From the self-titled debut album released in June 2015,

The self-titled debut record by Algiers definitely deserves attention from 2015, as it is one of the most intense and powerful records of that year. The experimental trio from Atlanta managed to combine post punk, soul, industrial sounds and gospel elements like for instance hums in a very ambitious way and they created a sinister and dark atmosphere throughout the 40min long album. It’s probably not one of these records that impress you at first listen as everything sounds very complex and uncommon – but it is undeniably worth a second listen.

What probably characterizes the band most is Franklin James Fishers infectious and outstanding voice – it is just impressive how it keeps all the influences together. Algiers is an exciting and challenging record, not only concerning the sound, also concerning the emotive and strong lyrics – A record of protest that deals with provocative  and political topics like racism. It’s out now via Matador Records.
