Algiers – New Dates With “Burn To Shine” Screenings

(photo : Titouan Massé)

Algiers have announced a run of East Coast tour dates that will be accompanied by screenings of the sixth installment of Brendan Canty (Fugazi) and Christoph Green’s Burn To Shine film series. After being delayed for nearly a decade, Burn To Shine 6: Atlanta will premiere on April 9th at The EARL in Atlanta, with performances by Algiers and Moon Diagrams (Moses Archuleta of Deerhunter).

The filmmakers and Algiers will then take the screenings up the East Coast (the latter’s full list of tour dates below includes Coachella and Panorama Festival), with the film available at burntoshineatlanta.com following the April 13th screening in NYC

Producer Brendan Canty and Director Christoph Green filmed 6 editions of Burn To Shine with their roving crew of shooters and audio geeks between 2004 and 2007, which included the likes of Wilco, Sleater-Kinney, Shellac, The Shins, Eddie Vedder, Tortoise, Will Oldham, Ted Leo, and many more.

Burn To Shine 6: Atlanta full line-up includes performances by Shannon Wright, The Selmanaires, The Liverhearts, Deerhunter, the Carbonas, The Black Lips, The Mighty Hannibal, Delia Gartrell, The Coathangers, All Night Drug Prowling Wolves, Mastadon, and Snowden.

After being delayed for nearly a decade, this Atlanta installment, curated by Lee Tesche of Algiers, holds vitality like no other, showing a music scene and city in transition, where generations past collide with major bands on the rise, capturing artists at the height of their powers, a few local legends who have since disappeared, and others that have gone on to much wider success.

Algiers Tour Dates & Screenings:
April 9 – Atlanta, GA – The EARL – Burn To Shine screening premiere – w/ Moon Diagrams (Moses Archuleta from Deerhunter)
April 11 – Carrboro, NC – Cat’s Cradle – Burn To Shine screening

Algiers – Mute Studio Sessions

Algiers – Blood (Mute Studio Sessions)

stream via Spotify

“Blood”
“But She Was Not Flying”
“Remains”

“The Mute Sessions were undertaken as a way of using alternate instrumentation to accentuate different sonic and conceptual contours, which may not have been so heavily in the foreground in the album versions.
Tape manipulation, musique concrete and synthesizer programming were some of the techniques employed here.”
“We endeavoured to strip a few of the songs of their machinations, as if re-sung from sheet music at the end of times to a tape loop and a broken piano.”

Earlier this week, Algiers have been compiling a series of personal playlists on the band tumblr alongside photos from the past year of touring ;

“Samples Reconstructed” – Franklin James Fisher
“Autumn Leaves” – Franklin James Fisher
“Hip hop and other dystopias” – Ryan Mahan
“October Moods” – Lee Tesche

VIDEO : Algiers – “And When You Fall”

“The video focuses, albeit abstractly, on the idea of observation and surveillance in our society particularly in our cities via the relentless and invasive accumulation of information… The video takes reference from the step and repeat edits seen in Ernie Gehr’s ‘Serene Velocity,’ abstract streets scenes as observed by Peter Hutton’s ‘New York Portraits’ and the erratic patterns in Len Lye’s film ‘Free Radicals’ while also leaning towards the pace of Cabaret Voltaire’s 80’s video output.”

With Algiers’ current tour continuing at LA’s Roxy this evening, here’s the 4th video from Algiers’ widely acclaimed self-titled debut, the Lamb & Sea directed “And When You Fall”.
