“Walk Like A Panther”
(stream the Uniform remix of “Walk Like A Panther” at Spotify)

“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. It’s galvanizing, uncompromising, and uplifting, and it should speak to everyone who still has some fight left in them.” – Sean O’Neal, The A/V Club

Today marks the long-awaited release date for Algiers’ incendiary 2nd album, the critically-acclaimed ‘The Underside Of Power’, available on digital, CD and LP formats at the url below. The first song from the Adrian Utley and Ali Chant-produced masterpiece, “Walk Like A Panther” (featuring a sample culled from a speech by Chicago Black Panther Fred Hampton), can be heard above in lyric video form.

In addition to the previously announced European stadium dates supporting Depeche Mode and this summer’s headlining club shows in North America, Algiers have more US dates happening in September supporting !!! (see below).

STREAM Algiers’ “Cleveland” (From ‘The Underside Of Power’)

(photo by Dustin Condren)

“A recurring theme in our music is the idea of injustice and the bitter understanding that obtaining justice in this world is all but impossible–particularly for black and brown people. I wanted the song to sound like the Final Judgement in the Bible, wherein the wicked are judged and condemned by the righteous with all the ‘weeping and gnashing of teeth,’ of the damned when justice is finally realized. This translates in the ‘solo’ section of the song. It consists of various recordings of people inconsolably crying and weeping while the guitar and lead vocal mirror their contortions. If you’ve ever witnessed something like that in real life, sound of a person’s sorrow is equal parts frightening and musical.” – Franklin James Fisher

We’re 10 days away from the global release of Algiers’ hotly anticipated 2nd album, the Adrian Utely-produced ‘The Underside Of Power’, and with that in mind, here’s the premiere of another track from this crucial work, “Cleveland”. Algiers’ updated tour itinerary, with headlining North American dates starting July 13 following European stadium shows supporting Depeche Mode, can be found below.

Spoon – “Hot Thoughts”, From Tuesday’s “The Ellen DeGeneres Show”

As mentioned earlier, Spoon appeared on Tuesday’s edition of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and performed the titular track from their universally hailed new album, ‘Hot Thoughts’. Remarkably, said broadcast occurred just days after the 20th anniversary of Ellen being on the cover of Time Magazine, and if you’re lucky, there’s a patient older person in your life who can calmly explain what magazines were.

Spoon make their first appearance on “The Ellen Degeneres Show” this afternoon at 4pm ; it might even be the band’s first domestic appearance on a major daytime show (the Elias Koteas Sports Bureau’s website is down, otherwise I’d look it up).  Ellen’s other guests today are Carson Daly and Rob Delaney.
