Algiers appears to be a new group from Matador Records. Not to be confused with the British band also called Algiers.

Their first album is not out but on the strength of the videos on YouTube they would be a greta fit for Bluesfest. A politically charged gospel and blues amalgam updated with modern production and beats which is truly powerful. (IMHO)

Here they are for your listening pleasure:

Listening tp Algiers' 2017 release 'The Underside of Power' They really deserve to be at Bluesfest. A great mix of blues, gospel, and industrial. Maybe it is a problem of scheduling? If not then they are a perfect fit. Did I say what a great singer is Franklin James Fisher? Power and passion in the gospel and blues traditions.
