Self titled album from  Atlanta's Algiers (not to be confused with the Middlesborough / Manchester 2-piece Algiers who feature Will formerly of Banquet faves Dartz!) 

"Irony. Utility. Pretext." is a hellish mix of wasp-stung post-punk, abrasive techno and tortured soul. Gospel, '80s house and rock are all nodded to as well, and vocalist Franklin James Fisher's rapturous, guttural stylings stand front and centre amongst the political maelstrom" - Line Of Best fit

Steeped in radical politics and deeply indebted to post-punk’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 synthesizes its eclectic influences, from Nina Simone and PJ Harvey to Suicide and Public Enemy, into frightening new form
