Record of the Week - Protomartyr - The Agent Intellect

The Agent Intellect, is the third album from Detroit post-punks Protomartyr and it is an utter sledgehammer. Right from the off it is pretty harrowing ride, bleak and threatening but really essential listening. It is named after an ancient philosophical questioning of how the mind operates in relation to the self. In line with this, it is articulate and elegant, but it is the constant threat of the switch getting flicked that is so rewarding... and when it does, it is devastating. Previous cutting 'Under Color Of Official Right' was our April 2014 record of the month and it is fair to agree with the press on this one, The Agent Intellect is a huge step forward. ★ ★ ★ ★

Interview: Kurt Vile

Philadelphia native Kurt Vile has been one of the biggest breakout stars of the city’s recent boom, alongside his close friends The War on Drugs. His evocative and winding guitar songs are the perfect framing for his lethargic vocals with his previous two albums (2011’s Smoke Ring for My Halo and 2013’s Wakin on a Pretty Daze) picking up huge critical praise, and bringing a slightly reluctant star to a much wider audience. Kurt was in the UK playing a few dates ahead of his fifth album ‘b'lieve i'm goin down…’ and he managed to take a few minutes out. As you’d expect, he’s a mellow guy.
