Algiers new album The Underside of Power

Today the new album by Algiers, The Underside of Power, is released via Matador Records. It’s also our Album of the Week, a masterful blend of post-punk darkness with powerful soul vocals and politically-charged lyrics. It’s the kind of album that feels like the perfect soundtrack to the chaotic moment we’re living in. From our review: “It simply grows more nuanced and complex, dismantling stylistic conventions as often as the group takes a pickaxe to the foundations of authoritarianism and injustice.”

Now that the album is officially released, it’s available to hear in its entirety on streaming platforms. And since it earned our endorsement, we highly recommend you soak in this unique and intense album for yourself. Listen to the Algiers The Underside of Power stream below, plus take a look at the band’s upcoming tour dates and new lyric video for “Walk Like a Panther.”

The Underside of Power follows Algiers’ 2015 self-titled debut.
