Om koncerten

14. januar: Vi har fanget Algiers-guitarist Lee Tesche til en snak om koncerten – læs interviewet længere nede.

Amerikanske Algiers er et eksperimenterende band, der i deres mangefacetterede indierock uden tøven sammenblander elementer af gospel og blues samt industrial og støjende postpunk.

Algiers blev dannet i 2007 og udgøres af sanger og guitarist Franklin James Fisher, bassist Ryan Mahan, guitarist Lee Tesche og den tidligere Bloc Party-trommeslager Matt Tong, der kom med så sent som i 2016. Det meget politisk bevidste og kunstnerisk dybt ambitiøse band kreerer et helt unikt musikalsk udtryk, der blandt andet er blevet kaldt dystopisk soul. Bandet single-debuterede med “Blood” i 2012, og tre år senere landede deres selvbetitlede debutalbum – et stærkt anmelderrost værk, der udkom på det toneangivende indie-pladeselskab Matador Records. Algiers, der blandt andet har turneret med Interpol, udgav i 2017 deres andet og hidtil seneste album, “The Underside Of Power”, der lige som debuten kastede et væld af dybt rosende anmeldelser af sig.

Interview med Lee Tesche
What can the audience expect from the show?
“We’re never quite sure what the audience expects, or if their expectations are ever met. For us, it’s a generally good way to spend an evening, performing, communing with people, and reconnecting with each other. The end goal is something transformative in some way.”

What merch do you bring?
“Typical things that people expect (records, t-shirts etc). If people want to remember the evening, they usually are interested in some sort of souvenir.”

Which song do you prefer performing live?
“It varies from night to night. Sometimes it’s not the songs themselves that I look forward to, but the space in between songs where someone may make an interesting sound that leads into the next song, or ideas that come together organically that are still ruminating from the last song, or chatter from the crowd that might amuse us.”

How have your most recent concerts been?
“We are back on the road after a brief period off during the holidays. We’ve been very busy this past year and our concerts have been all over the place and full of surprises, but generally great. Our last few concerts in November and December were spent sharing the stage with our friends in Young Fathers and Downtown Boys.”

The Pool
The Pool har haft base i Berlin siden debuten i 2011 – en EP produceret af J. Arbeit fra Einstürzende Neubauten. I 2015 udgav de “Repetitions” på københavnske Drone Recs, og i 2018 udgav de tre EP’er på tyske recordJet. De har i 2018 været et aktivt live-act på de berlinske scener og kommer nu for første gang til Aarhus og spiller deres melodiske synthwave-sæt med afsæt i dub, postpunk og pop. The Pool er live en trio fra DK/UK/Australien.

Anmeldercitater
“The Underside Of Power is righteous, vicious and vital. If the world is a stage, then at the moment it’s hard to think of a better house band than Algiers.” (MusicOMH.com, 2017 – læs hele anmeldelsen)

“Underside feels like a quantum leap from [its 2015 self-titled debut] both musically and thematically, newly charged with the righteous anger of Antifa and Black Lives Matter, and explosively unleashed by artists and activists who sense that this is their moment to seize. The result is 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.” (The A.V. Club 2017 – læs hele anmeldelsen)
