Delve into Algiers’ fiery ‘The Underside of Power’ (album review)

Delve into Algiers’ fiery ‘The Underside of Power’ (album review)

Two years ago, Algiers announced themselves to the world with their raw but fiery debut album. Algiers introduced us to the intercontinental band’s kaleidoscopic sound that was unlike anything released that year or even in this decade. Elements of gospel, soul, post-punk, New Wave, blues, and indie rock were masterfully blended into a maelstrom of combustible sonic energy. Algiers’ brilliance […]

Gringo Star – “The Sides and in Between”

A lot of bands today would do anything to be able to work with a Grammy-winning producer, unless you’re Gringo Star. Granted, the quartet from Atlanta started their careers working with Ben H. Allen (Gnarls Barkley, Christina Aguilera, Kaiser Chiefs), which lead to two well-received albums. In 2013, however, the band started to take full control of their career as […]

MammaBear – “The Strange Love EP”

For a couple of years, Atlanta-based MammaBear have been blasting out infectious ’90s- and early 2000s-era rock. Their initial stuff leaned towards alternative rock, but their latest EP, The Strange Love EP – although it’s more like a split single since it contains two songs – is more along the lines of the garage rock of The Oblivians and Thee Oh Sees. Both “Kick Me” and “Strange Love” are […]

Starbenders – “Powder”

Starbenders – “Powder”

  “Powder” is the buzzkill of a new single by Atlanta, Georgia punk-pop band Starbenders. This is a band that could be called fearless, as they are unafraid to tackle the most sensitive subjects. On this track, they sing about a night of drug use, hence the single’s title. Musically, though, their combination of post-punk and pop is delirious and […]
