Algiers readies self-titled debut for Matador

Algiers will release their self-titled debut album later this year on Matador. Listen to “But She Was Not Flying” here:
Algiers fuses the rapturous call and response of millenarian gospel, the bellowing urgency of 60s protest soul and the unhinged ferocity of no wave into a visceral music. With an aesthetic informed by sonic revolutionaries from Nina Simone to Suicide, The Minutemen to PJ Harvey, these three èmigrès of the American Deep South, now residing in London and New York City, conjure dead sounds to life in frightening new directions.
Algiers’ debut NYC shows:
2/4 – New York, NY @ Mercury Lounge – 8PM
2/6 – Brooklyn, NY @ Baby’s All Right – 8PM
