    Originally released in 2012 by the now-defunct Atlanta imprint Double Phantom, “Blood” b/w “Black Eunuch” marks the seething, debut transmission from avant-gospel-punk provocateurs Algiers. This critical, now-out-of-print 7″ has been reissued on blue vinyl with alternate artwork by Geographic North to commemorate the band’s 2017 European dates supporting Depeche Mode.

    The main type nearly matches Helvetica Inserat, but there are differences such as a longer middle bar on the ‘E’, a straighter ‘R’ leg, and a closed ‘S’. This could be a wood version of the face.
