Algiers: Cry of the Martyrs

I forgot to add Algiers excellent The Underside of Power album to my list of the top albums of 2017. The post-punk band’s second record is a display of controlled chaos and anger with its hypnotic songs. “Cry of the Martyrs” is one of the best tracks from the album with its industrial sound and lead singer Franklin James Fisher’s gospel lyrics. Check it out below.

 

Human Tetris: Ruins

Human Tetris is a post-punk band from Russia that has returned to the music scene after several years on hiatus. The band came to my attention back in 2011 when I was delving deep into the post-punk genre and I have kept tabs on them ever since.

“Ruins” is a new song from the band that retains their driving guitar riffs and whispery vocals. Check it out below.
