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.

Like so many others, this came like a bolt out of the blue and, even though it's well before payday, I had to have this astonishing album on vinyl to prove it exists. The feel of the tunes makes me feel like the Impressions do, Curtis Mayfield, the big spaces and instinctive horns and stuff drifting in and out. Great grooves and I can see lots of ghosts nodding along to this with big smiles on their faces. At last! Anthony Cottrell

A perfect debut, and was still an enjoyable listen after first listening to Ants From Up There. In many ways, I prefer this album. It's so raw and intense; I'm in love with the noise many of these songs experiment with. Despite their length, every song is substantive and benefits from their length. Isaac's lyrics really shine here. johns7x
