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.

Algiers release special edition 7” to support the struggle to end state violence against Black people and destroy white supremacy.

“This release has been created to support, in a small way, those who continue to struggle under life and death circumstances to end the miserable condition that exists for Black and other oppressed people in this country and its colonial world.

“We dedicate this to the families of those who have been murdered by the police state in America, and encourage our supporters to continue to donate in their memory.” - 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.
