Hardly Art


Released: 7th Apr 2014


lp + download + booklet

Released: 7th Apr 2014


taut, dark & brilliant expansions of punk, indie &  post punk, bringing to mind the fall, parquet courts & tyvek.

since their debut protomartyr have incorporated more austere post-punk & the odd synth into their frantically windchilled punk. the result is total genius, a combination of untamed rigid aggression, unsettled patience / restraint & an uncanny knack for tying the whole thing together memorably. bringing to mind the fall, parquet courts & detroit luminaries Tyvek, this is essential for anyone who likes the darker, untamed no man’s land between indie, punk & post-punk.
