Synopsis: In the latest mini-episode of Columbia House Party, we discuss Algiers, how their politics are right for the moment, and other Black artists to support during Bandcamp’s no-fees days.
Run away from your America is right. In the latest Columbia House Party single, Jake and Blake take a quick dive into the political Atlanta four-piece Algiers and the lead single Dispossession off of their 2020 album There Is No Year. Algiers feel of this time – now and with their 2017 sophomore album The Underside of Power – and the hosts discuss what drew them to Algiers and who they compare to, if you haven’t checked them out. The hosts also explore some other Black artists they discovered during the recent amplification efforts of Bandcamp and the indie side of the industry.
