AccessAtlanta is your weekly podcast about things to do in and around Atlanta and beyond. This week, we’ll talk with Atlanta’s Algiers.

Algiers is often described as melding punk aggression with gospel’s soul-searching power, but those are just two of the more prevalent elements in the quartet’s singular sound. It all began back in 2012, though the roots of the band were established much earlier, with the three of the members growing up together in Atlanta. We’ll hear from Franklin James Fisher, Ryan Mahan and Lee Tesche on this week’s podcast, just before their homecoming show this weekend in Atlanta at the EARL on Oct. 9.
