Protomartyr The Agent Intellect Album Tracklist
Since, on the most fundamental level, Protomartyr lives and kicks the bucket by Casey’s enthusiasm. With a voice that seems like the base of a highball, Casey’s conveyance appears to be combustible, be it growling in opener “The Devil in His Youth” or the rambling mix of “Pontiac 87”. What’s noteworthy is exactly how expressive the melodies can be with a generally low vocal extent. Both “I Forgive You” and “Quitters Starve” seem ahead of schedule in the record with solid snares, neither beautiful nor anthemic. Rather, Casey appears to be something better, a vocalist who needn’t bother with support artists who might preferably prompt their own particular self-expression than make them join in his. It’s an incomparable certainty, and it’s what makes the end of “Pontiac 87”, with the rehashed lines “There’s no utilization being miserable about it/What’s the purpose of crying about it?” ring with about as much compassion as a more established sibling instructing you to quit hitting yourself.
