Perhaps most see-worthy is Protomartyr, the Detroit band that’s blowing up in a big way. Their last album, Under Color of Official Right, was a major departure for the fedora-loving band, but The Agent Intellect (Pitchfork called it “harrowing”) hovers halfway between the new sound and the old Protomartyr. The Dilly Dally squad sure know how to capitalize on ’90s nostalgia, or maybe they’re just as wooed by the decade of (presumably) their childhood as every other #millennial seems to be. Either way, hand me something that sounds like Hole circa Live Through This, and I’ll gobble it right up. Honorable mentions: Downtown Boys and Shopping.
