CMJ Showcase: Protomartyr, Dilly Dally, Perfect Pussy, Downtown Boys, Shopping, and More

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.

Instead, you’ll need PMA, advanced tickets, and whatever lies beyond this line.

Speaking of the Melvins, They’re Coming to Santos

In the long lost interview we published today, Mike Patton of Faith No More talked about releasing new music by the Melvins. That was a good decade and a half ago, but King Buzzo et. al. are still at it, having just posted the new single, “Captain Comedown,” off of a split EP they’re releasing with tourmates Le Butcherettes. If you want to get your hands on the Chaos As Usual 10″ — not to mention, see one of the most rip-roarin’ live bands out there — the Melvins will be selling it when they hit Santos Party House on June 29 and 30.

Normally if we wanted to see a live rendish of “Sweet Child o’ Mine,” we’d have to settle for Guns N’ Hoses, but not last night: Slash, not Gash, was in full force at Santos Party House, at a private show for some lucky Sirius XM listeners.
