“A gripping sound that gathers disparate Southern modes—Americana harmonies, gospel choirs, chain-gang chants—into rousing protest punk” – The New Yorker
“The 20th century reimagined as a series of revolutionary spirituals” – The Wire
“Theirs is soul music for the end of the world” – FACT
“It is one of the year’s very best albums, and sets out Algiers as one of the decade’s very best bands” – Clash
“A collection of songs that articulates that fury and despair with such authority, it deserves to become the soundtrack for whatever future documentary montage captures the mess of 2017” –The AV Club

The Underside Of Power, Algiers’ sophomore record, produced by Adrian Utley and Ali Chant, is out today on Matador Records. The critics have already begun to weigh in with nearly unanimous praise from the likes of NPR, FACT, The Wire, Clash, Uncut, New York Times, Noisey, and more.
To celebrate this deeply political record, the band have shared a lyric video for the high-energy album opener ‘Walk Like A Panther’. The song begins with a sample of a legendary speech from Chicago Black Panther, Fred Hampton, and displays the band’s signature uncategorizable sound — echoes of Southern trap, early NYC hip hop, grime, soul, industrial, and horror film soundtracks come together to create something disturbing, confrontational, and beautiful.
