    Protomartyr, Flasher, Street Themes

    Joe Casey thrives on unease. The Protomartyr frontman delivers dystopian narratives with an air of cool as post-punk rages beneath him. That disinterested drawl/bark often sounds at odds with the tense unease of the instrumentation, like he’s already given up entirely. The Detroit quartet’s raging fourth album, Relatives in Descent, dropped two weeks ago and wades further into Protomartyr’s angular, industrial wasteland.

    Mike Flanigin Trio w/ Jimmie Vaughan & George Rains

    If the Continental Club isn’t gift enough to Austin, sister venue C-Boy’s stars one of the city’s finest musicians on a weekly basis. The elder Vaughan brother – still perhaps the greater of the two in economy and touch – sings and stings on Live at C-Boy’s, an organ trio bubbler with Mike Flanigin and late drum deity Barry “Frosty” Smith. George “God” Rains subs for Smith.

    Tricky, In the Valley Below

    Upon leaving trip-hop duo Massive Attack, Tricky (Adrian Thaws) released 1995’s Maxinquaye, a sinewy beast stretching hip-hop, reggae, soul, and strains of rock from his hometown Bristol. His mercurial aesthetic transcends over 10 albums, including hallucinogenic rap Pre-Millennium Tension (1996), genre-bust chameleon Knowle West Boy (2008), and last month’s moody, electronic Ununiform.
