nofatclips 3rd listen: Press play and you're in for a hell of a ride!

2nd listen: paying more attention to the lyrics is really the key to engage.

1st listen: track 1 needs some more listenin' but track 2 is fantastic! Favorite track: It All Comes Around Again.

Cosmographer I already knew the essay-worthy Can the Sub_Bass Speak? so I purchased this for the second track, which is spectacular. This band is simply on a roll and the prophetically titled There is no Year will be on many AOTY lists, including mine. Favorite track: It All Comes Around Again.

about

Algiers

Algiers is a band of musicians born in Atlanta, Georgia, the rotten hub of the Ol’ American South, where W.E.B. Dubois once saw a riot goin’ on, and where the hell and highwater swirls ‘round to the knees.
