Protomartyr Relatives in Descent

Relatives in Descent is Protomartyr's fourth album since forming in Detroit in 2010. Jim and Greg have loved all their previous records and had them on the show in 2014. After hearing the new album, Greg declares that they're one of the best rock bands in America and that they keep getting better. He cites Greg Ahee's agile but wild guitar playing and Alex Leonard's unconventional textured drumming as keys to their sound. Joe Casey's lyrics, he says, have an emotional undercurrent with a sense of anger. Jim also loves Casey's elliptical approach to his lyrics, which show empathy for people who don't often get attention or respect. He was hooked from the first time he heard the album and keeps finding things with each subsequent listen. Relatives in Descent gets an enthusiastic double-Buy It.
