PROTOMARTYR
AGENT INTELLECT
HARDLYART
Every once in awhile, a guitar/bass/drums band proves that there's still room for originality in rock music. This third album from the Detroit group PROTOMARTYR is a perfect example of that. There's nothing particular new about the approach or arrangements, but there's something about the chord phrasing of the guitar & the vocal delivery that doesn't sound much like anybody else right now. Singer Joe Casey has a gruff, sort of monotone vocal delivery that's like a deeper sounding Mark E. Smith, PERE UBU's David Thomas & the music sounds like a mix of mid-period SONIC YOUTH, LES SAVY FAV & HOT SNAKES. This is definitely one of the better noisy guitar rock records we've heard in awhile.
