Regular SIGD readers will remember Algiers as the Indie Pop duo with former members of The Maple State and DARTZ!. This, however, is a whole different kind of group, but with the same name. The trio describe themselves as an "experimental gospel no wave soul pulp band". They're based in Atlanta, Georgia, or as they refer to it: "the rotten hub of the Ol' American South, wehre W.E.B. Dubois once saw a riot goin' on, and where the hell and high water swirls 'round the trees." Check out the vid for the song in the preview up top:
I was enjoying the song right away but the video made me get into it more. I like when that happens.
