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. – Libby Webster
