Algiers self titled debut LP is out today via Matador / Remote Control Records.
Have a listen to Irony Utility Pretext their latest single which is a genre bending deep track.
Algiers comprises singer/guitarist Franklin James Fisher (deemed “one of the most powerfully guttural vocalists in rock today” by SPIN), guitarist Lee Tesche, and bassist Ryan Mahan. From the militant stomp of ‘Remains’ to Fisher’s commanding presence on the gospel no wave blowout ‘Black Eunuch,’ Algiers channels righteous fury into an incisive, innovative assault that Noisey has described as “intense…right on the beat of the current cultural climate”and we completely agree!
Woohoo! SOAK’s debut album Before We Forgot How To Dream is out today!
Bridie has been a rising star in her hometown of Derry since the age of 14, when a chance uploading of the ‘Sea Creatures’ demo to the BBC Introducing playlist saw A&R board the next flight over and park up outside the Monds-Watson’s household. Yet SOAK rushed into nothing, instead splitting her time between studies, the local skate-park and daunting early shows (such as opening Derry’s tenure as City of Culture hours before a GCSE exam).
Things moved forward last year, when Bridie teamed up with CHVRCHES for their launch of a singles label, toured with George Ezra and Tegan & Sara, before signing a deal with Rough Trade the same summer most of her friends got their A-Level results. Recently she played three special shows in Melbourne and Sydney. Read a review of her Melbourne show here.
She’s made quite a few fans as well – have a read of this review from a six year old called Erin.
