Algiers – ‘Blood’

Algiers – ‘Blood’


I introduced the music of Algiers, an Atlanta “doom soul trio” here three years ago but the band went very quiet after that initial appearance.

Glad to hear then that the band are back and about to release an album on Matador Records in June and that they’ve re-recorded the song ‘Blood’ that got my attention in the first place. The band are inspired by gospel, 60s protest soul and no wave.

The video for ‘Blood’ ” envisions a parallel future where artistic and political revolutionaries convene across temporal and social space in shared revolt at our current predicament.”
