algiers – the underside of power (2017)

a propulsive intense collision of post punk industrial and Motown – Suicide, Curtis Mayfield, PIL, A.R. Kane – this title track from Atlanta,Georgia quartet Algiers second album – a follow-up their acclaimed 2015 debut Algiers – is an exhilarating call to arms; a super charged dance floor demon that resurrects pop/rocks original insurrectionary spirit; making a mockery of pop celebrity cultures facile narcissistic gestures of political and emotional engagement. a plea and a warning, ‘dystopian soul’ for and by the dispossessed.
