The adherents of the Berlin post-punk rush into Minsk: the duet is going to drag the listeners into the whirlpool of the languid coldwave. If your heart has been missing the dry cod of drum machines, the chime of synthesizers and the squeal of an electric guitar, come to the Korpus.

According to music critic Artemy Troitsky, the most interesting thing in the history of Algiers is “the fact that this is the rarest case in modern music, when musicians came up with something really new.” And most importantly – this new could shoot into the heart.
