商品の紹介

  • 黒人フロントマン、フランクリン・ジェイムズ・フィッシャーを中心に革新的であり強烈なポストパンク・サウンドを軸に、サザン・ラップからノーザン・ソウル、ゴスペルからインダストリアルまであらゆる音楽要素を貪欲に吸収した唯一無二のスタイルで、デビュー時には〈ゴスペル版デス・グリップス〉と評されたUSディープ・サウス出身のバンド、Algiersの2作目が完成!

    レコーディングの大半はブリストルで、Portisheadのエイドリアン・アトリーによる精力的なプロデュースのもとで行われ、前作と同様に刺激的な音楽性とゴスペルのスピリチュアリティをぶつかり合わせた、現代賛美歌とも表現されるサウンドと、初期CANのヴォーカル、マルコム・ムーニーを彷彿とさせるヴォーカルスタイルはまさに、どのバンドとも比較することができない。

  • Rolling Stone - 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Singer Franklin James Fisher, whose multi-instrumentalist duties include everything from Rhodes to cello to sampling, is a perfect gospel shouter for our times, staring down darkness as he dances at the edge of our shared oblivion." Rolling Stone - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Singer Franklin James Fisher, whose multi-instrumentalist duties include everything from Rhodes to cello to sampling, is a perfect gospel shouter for our times..." Alternative Press - 4.5 stars out of 5 -- "There might be no other band working that so effortlessly transcends its myriad influences, creating something authentically new, disturbing and beautiful." Magnet - "The instrumental textures are dense and multilayered, producing music that blends anger with a measured optimism." Clash (Magazine) - "It's still multi-faceted and broad in its range, but so much more streamlined and more focused, bringing inflections of soulful pop and electronica closer to the surface."

Photographers: Lee Tesche; Franklin Fisher. On their self-titled debut, Algiers militantly asserted that the sound of resistance could be "musical" and that familiar sources could be utilized to create something groundbreaking. The Underside of Power goes even further. As a band, Algiers is not easy to define, and their music here -- which offers a perfect soundtrack for the disbelief and disillusionment of the Brexit vote and the ensuing rage and paranoia resulting from Donald J.Trump's election -- is equally mercurial, but not limited sonically or topically. With drummer Matt Tong now an official member, and producer Adrian Utley acting as one, this album extends the band's reach to accept (not always willingly) a new, disturbing, and dystopian frontier -- but also the hope to transcend it. In opener "Walk Like a Panther," Franklin James Fisher's howl of indignation and pain voices what his mind perceives as a seemingly impossible realization: "We won't be led to slaughter/This is self-genocide!" It erupts atop post-industrial funk and elusive, insistent trap beats and shard-like guitar fragments enveloped by a crushing wall of synths that erupt in an apocalyptic crescendo. This revelation is unacceptable as both the music and the vocals rail against what the lyrics reveal. A crack emerges between the perception of reality and the intent of resistance. The juxtaposition of Southern African-American gospel in "Cry of the Martyrs"-- a paean to female emancipation in spite of apocalyptic oppression -- and the Northern Soul in the title track sounds like post-punk and sheer noise colliding with the harmonic innocence of another time; it's not only startling, but jarring, and almost violent in its ability to force the listener from passive complacency to uncomfortable investigation. The anger and disillusionment on Algiers' debut were expressed through its raw, unhinged mix. Here, while their outlook is overall less tolerant, it's voiced with more atmospheric control. "Death March" employs this strategy as guitarist Lee Tesche's nasty guitar riff engages in interplay with Ryan Mahan's spiky bassline atop a deep, dark Depeche Mode-esque vibe. Likewise, the lone instrumental, "Bury Me Standing," utilizes a lonely clarinet in place of the human voice, making full use of space. Fisher is accompanied by a doom-laden choir of the damned on "Cleveland" as he rails against hate crimes and murder committed against African-Americans by police. While "Hymn for an Average Man" offers a momentary respite in waltz time with carefully structured, contrapuntal harmonies in its first half, it resolves as an agonizing collision of nightmarish prog and violent dissonance. It sets up the fingerpopping, fractured, souled-out, post-punk gospel of "The Cycle/The Spiral: Time to Go Down Slowly." Here Fisher resumes the role he introduced on "Walk Like a Panther": That of the old testament prophet coming to collect on the karmic bill. Scraping, fuzzy guitars, rumbling basslines, wonky upright pianos, syncopated backbeats, dubby vocals, and punchy synths swirl as they resist the waves of mounting despair. Algiers ultimately turn doomsday on its head unexpectedly. On The Underside of Power, they assert that even amid violence, darkness, and horror, that the human spirit is affirmed through witness and resistance, leading not only to solace but to redemption. ~ Thom Jurek
