Spillestedet Stengade | Copenhagen

Algiers [US] + Support: TBA Vi inviterer revolutionen forbi når eksperimental rock bandet Algiers fra USA gæster Stengade til februar. Atlanta baserede Algiers trækker fra et forskelligt antal musikalske (og ikke-musikalske) indflydelser; hvoraf de mest bemærkelsesværdige er post-punk, gospel, sydgotisk litteratur og konceptet 'the other'. Grundet den afrofolk inspireret vokal, dystre stemning, lyrisk undertrykkelses tema og stor vægt på atonal teksturer er deres lyd er blevet beskrevet som dystopisk 'soul'.
Gør dig klar til en aften der byder på brandvarm blanding af gotisk gospel-funk som finder den rigtige balance mellem doomy melodrama, metallisk Motown og hamrende post-punk.
*OBS* Billetsalg starter fredag d. 17 juli kl: 11
In the FBI file on the American rock ‘n’ roll band Algiers—which given their prior penchant for repping the Black Panthers, Malcolm X, Angela Davis, and Afeni Shakur, among others, surely exists—under the subheading for their third album, There is No Year, the intelligence should soon read: all prior analytics appear outdated… this undoes everything we thought we knew about their intentions…what hides inside them… as if they are mutating live on camera, between frames…
Indeed, even those aware of the ideals of this outspoken four-piece will find their latest direction traversing unprecedented ground. Coming off two years of nonstop world-touring for their critically acclaimed second album, The Underside of Power—including Central and Eastern Europe, the Baltic States and the Balkans, where they have established a rabid following; an extended stint opening for Depeche Mode in huge stadiums such as the 75,000-capacity Olympiastadion in Berlin; as well as Glastonbury 2019—There is No Year solidifies and expands upon the doom-laden soul of their foundation, toward an even more epic, genre-reformatting sound, one somehow suspended in the amber of “a different era,” as described by guitarist Lee Tesche.
From the instant synth-pulse of the opening seconds of There is No Year, it’s clear that Algiers have set out to stake new ground, internally as much as sonically. At the forefront of this evolution is the centrality of power housed in Algiers’ multi-instrumentalist lead vocalist, Franklin James Fisher, whose voice and words provide the backbone of the album, his lyrics sourced entirely from an epic poem, “Misophonia,” composed during his search for meaning amidst a protracted personal period of anxiety and lack.
