The debut LP by Algiers is haunted by promises of the past the rapturous call and response of millenarian gospel, the bellowing urgency of 60s protest soul, the scene-searching intensity of DC hardcore and the smeared viscosity of post-punk and no wave. After all, as Marx once said: "The tradition of all dead generations weighs like a nightmare on the brains of the living." But rather than revel in a state of nostalgia, the band wields these burdened visions to charge headlong into the future. Supporting Interpol on their spring tour, then headlining a tour in June.
