The Underside of Power is the second album from Algiers. Touchstones on the uncompromising and impassioned record run from Southern rap to Northern soul, gospel to IDM, industrial to grime to Italo. Lyrically it touches on oppression, police brutality, dystopia and hegemonic power structures. Its fiery words encompass TS Eliot, the Old Testament, The New Jim Crow, Tamir Rice and Hannah Arendt, while carried by soulful and visceral songs, meditative moments and personal reflection.
