Well this is interesting. Algiers are an incendiary new outfit who aren't content to sit back and let the revolution slide, instead they bark out politically themed lyrics over music which takes in everything from Northern Soul to grime to post punk. The lead track has been described nail on head as Suicide meets the Temptations and could well be a future classic. Also Matt Tong from Bloc Party on drums and we know how good he is.

Algiers, who don’t come from Algiers, release Algiers, their debut album. What they do is a kind of no-wave via Southern gospel, a mixture that certainly sounds strange on paper, but that actually comes together. Unhinged energy and wild spirit are at the core of both genres, so Algier’s strange synthesis pulls it off.
