LIVE REVIEW: Protomartyr @ Oxford Art Factory, Sydney

Protomartyr, Mere Women, Angie @ Oxford At Factory, Sydney Australia. February 16th, 2018 The best gigs are the ones where the creative quality and intensity builds evenly, seemingly at a symbiotic pace with the gathering audience.

SONG OF THE WEEK: Protomartyr | Maidenhead

Protomartyr delivered one of my favourite guitar-based records of last year in the dark, post-punk rock of No Passion All Technique so I was pretty excited to see they already have a follow-up recorded and just released. Under Color of Official Right takes the key elements of the last album and improves on them exponentially.
