Itchy Ears: Protomartyr's Detroit Music Playlist

February 6, 2015

By Travis Wright

Protomartyr is a Detroit band you should know. They blend punkish genres into something broody, thoughtful, modern and original. The songs are tight and their delivery earnest. Last year's debut, "Under the Color of Official Right," was released on Hardly Art records and resulted in appropriate critical acclaim and a subsequent European tour. These dudes are the real deal. Refreshing.

They band plays the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit's Winter Exhibition opening party tonight (2/6/15) with new-to-the-scene outfit Double Winter.

WDET's Travis Wright had the band curate a playlist of other must-listen Detroit bands on the scene right now, including music from The Intended, Turn to Crime, Fred Thomas, and Growwing Pains.
