ALGARA's first communiqué vomits in the face of moderate leftism; encouraging class war and insurrection, and wanting the total annihilation of police forces. Home recorded in a Barcelona Squat, the production of their debut four-track EP is minimal. ALGARA deal in stark and sparse sounding post-punk that hints at CRISIS, early DECIMA VICTIMA and JOY DIVISION in equal measures. The lead guitar is brittle and skeletal, and sits perfectly on the driving rhythm section, made up of a primitive drum machine, creating a sonic background for their message to be heard.
ALGARA has expanded into a four-member band since this recording and is currently performing live while working on an upcoming LP.

The first time I heard this album I thought it was interesting & palatable enough to give it a full listen, but I wasn't hooked. Then all week long I found random rhythms stuck in my head so I'd replay a song, then another song, then listen to the album again.. & now I fucking love this album & I feel like it kind of opened up my interests in some regards. Cheers! phonkadelic

Absolutely beautiful EP from one of my favourite artists that I've recently come across.
From the deep vocals and bass in A Spine to the chilling piano and synths in Prelude. Which then feeds into Hurtwood, with its punkish vocals and combined madness of the drums, guitar and synths. frensfern
