Algiers (Back Room)

When: Sat., June 6, 9 p.m. 2015

The components of Algiers’ sound seem at odds. Formed in Atlanta, the band pairs industrial beats that reflect dehumanized mechanical function with gospel-inflected vocals meant to represent soul and humanity. Their debut album, released through Matador Records, actually reconciles that disconnect pretty well. Franklin James Fisher’s strong voice seems like the expression of a spirit overcoming dread, not succumbing to it. —Jeff Klingman

Price: $10-$12
