This week on the show I'm playing the hypnotic new album from producer Nym, titled Lilac Chaser. That name is a reference to an optical illusion created by vision expert and balloonist Jeremy Hinton. That, and other illusions can be viewed here.
This week we'll hear new music from Algiers, the Atlanta band that melds themes and genres of the U.S. south into uneasy soul music. Lead singer Franklin James Fisher told The Mothership that he once heard "that you don't know what real power is until you're on the wrong side of it." That idea is at the forefront of their latest album, which is titled The Underside of Power.
