NEW MUSIC: Protomartyr announce new single and album

One of my favourite bands over the last few years has been Protomartyr, a quartet out of Detroit who combine post-punk dynamics, a nihilist howl, jagged edges and intelligent espousals. The good news is they have a new album called The Agent Intellect (their 3rd in as many years) coming out on August 8th via Hardly Art /Inertia.

Below you can hear the first single ‘Why Does It Shake?’, a typically rhythmically strong track of creeping tension that lumbers and dances along with equal swagger, building and blossoming into sheets of guitar at the 3.5 minute mark.
