Current track





Yeah, so, this supergroup exists: Greg Ahee of Protomartyr on guitar, Mike Wallace of Preoccupations on drums, and AJ Lambert, the daughter of Nancy Sinatra, on bass and vocals. They’re called Bloodslide. And why not? This sounds sick. Their second single “Trap Door” is out today from their forthcoming self-titled debut EP out in July. To make it even better, it was made with producer Sonny DiPerri, who’s worked with Protomartyr, DIIV, Animal Collective.

Bloodside is a new trio featuring Protomartyr’s Greg Ahee on guitar, Preoccupations’ Mike Wallace on drums, and vocalist AJ Lambert, who happens to be Nancy Sinatra’s daughter.

One of the most exciting rock bands of the last decade, the Detroit-based post punk band will release its fifth album, Ultimate Success Today July 17th. The word prophetic isn’t a stretch. With its references to disease, institutional brutality, and gross inequality—symptoms of “a cosmic grief, beyond all comprehension”—the new record matches the apocalyptic mood of the US, and much of the world, in 2020. But it also speaks to the continued growth of the Protomartyr aesthetic, pairing contributions by players associated with free jazz and experimental music with post-punk rhythms.

Protomartyr are returning this summer with the slightly delayed new album Ultimate Success Today. We’ve already heard “Processed By The Boys” and “Worm In Heaven.” And now the wordy Detroit post-punkers are back with another new song, a four-minute gathering storm called “Michigan Hammers.” The track comes with a music video made entirely of stock […]
