Detroit based band Protomartyr’s new record, “The Agent Intellect”, arrives October 9th worldwide via Hardly Art. This week they started sharing “Dope Cloud,” a new song from the full-length, and apparently as close as the band as ever come to a “radio single.”
The almost-anthem deals in a currency of lost ownership and the futility of creature comforts, as Joe Casey’s lyrics paint mental images of a “saltmine racist gang” and a “pizza king” swollen with riches. It reminds us of the melodic raw power that we initially heard in old favorites like early Jawbreaker, Dag Nasty, Sebadoh and Pavement – definitely one of our favorite tracks released this year.
The Agent Intellect remains available for pre-order, with all initial LP orders on dark green vinyl.

Being in the studio allowed the group to experiment as a band and brought them closer together, after which they ended up with a 13 song labor of love, ‘Reverie’ that tackles the subject of fighting stagnation. Regarding this subject, the band explained that it is “an honest attempt to understand the boredom and comfort of unhealthy situations, poisonous loves, cruel social structures, doubt and dead end routines”.Pillar HypeMachine

Last August Adrian Nation won a host of new fans after playing a memorable support slot at the View Two followed by a set at the Bluecoat for the Liverpool Acoustic Garden (part of Liverpool International Music Festival). At the start of 2015, and following a recommendation from Liverpool Acoustic’s Graham Holland, Adrian was asked by Sky Arts to audition for their new show Guitar Star. Hosted by Edith Bowman and with judges Nitin Sawhney, Helen Sanderson and Huey Morgan, the aim of the show was to find the UK’s best new extraordinary guitar player. From the thousands who applied, Adrian won a place at the national auditions and was one of only four guitarists to make it through to the acoustic heats where he was mentored by guitar legends Rodrigo y Gabriela before performing to an invited audience at London’s Bush Hall.
Support on the night is provided by young, smoky-voiced blues singer Sophie Anderson, fresh from a live session with Dave Monks on BBC Introducing in Merseyside, a support slot at the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall for Roseanne Cash, a performance at FestEvol, and being the Liverpool Echo’s Buzz Artist of the Week.
Completing the lineup is FABIA, the musical incarnation of London born, Liverpool based singer-songwriter and pianist Fabia Anderson who entwines classical and contemporary folk, soul and Baroque-pop.

Theme: Solid Ground by Neil Campbell
Adrian Nation, Father, Brother and Son, a writer whose songs come from the heart and capture your soul. From his home town of Holland on Sea in Essex UK these songs are painted from a life of hard work, love and passion and a feeling of connection to all things, to feel part of something that is bigger than himself.
This year has brought some exciting and wonderful changes for Adrian, just off a run on Sky Arts Guitar Star, this year he has completed very successful UK and Dutch Tours and in November he will embark on his first ever Canadian tour. “The Dream and The Adventure continues”VIDEO PREVIEW youtu.be/WPyFAENvwFs – Watch Adrian Nation’s audition onSky Arts Guitar Star. His performance of an original composition Five Finger Rapids impressed judges Nitin Sawhney, Helen Sanderson and Huey Morgan so much that they picked him as one of only four guitarists to go through to the acoustic heats. SOPHIE ANDERSON
Sophie Anderson is a blues singer based in Liverpool who has a surprisingly big voice which has been described as “animalistic” and “sensational.” She has recently performed in The Liverpool Philharmonic in support of Roseanne Cash, and has played in The Kazimier as part of Festevol.VIDEO PREVIEW youtu.be/UvoNaAEvqcw – Here’s Sophie Anderson performing The Healer Man for the ATP Sessions.
facebook.com/fabiamusic ‘FABIA (Fabia Anderson) is a singer-songwriter from London now living in Liverpool. She came to Liverpool 4 years ago to study music and has been performing her solo material since November 2014 in venues across the North West and London. Entwining the classical and contemporary, FABIA fuses influences of folk, soul and Baroque-pop into her own individual style. Alongside her solo work FABIA can be seen playing in contrasting bands The Soul Rays, The Good Host and The D-Tales. FABIA is usually seen around Liverpool with her somewhat large musical accomplice, ‘Roland’. 28th August sees her returning to View Two Gallery’s grand piano, giving Roland a well-deserved night in.’

“Drawing on the seminal Warp releases of the ’90s, including Black Dog, Plaid and early Autechre, as well as more contemporary peers, Liminal Drifter evokes a spectrum of emotions across beautifully detailed electronic tapestries. Moving from downtempo dream-pop to shimmering, spacey electronica, this suite of songs works as if by osmosis, gently irradiating your subconscious.” [Album Info via Hidden Shoal]

In addition to “Summer Night,” look out for the new Tree Machines singles “To Be Alive” on August 28th and “At Arms Length” on September 18th. Then it’s on to the first Tree Machines album.
Lured back to the memories of singer Ethan Tuft’s 1980s youth, Lost Hills is a collection of weird, slow-motion future-retro synthpop saturated with Betamax-modulated, reverb-drenched synths, delay-soaked staccato guitars, obsolete nu-disco grooves, ice particles floating above peaceful harmonies, along with intimate stories of loss, unmanageable fear, and paralyzing regret.
Recommended if you like Tycho, Washed Out, New Order, Passion Pit, or Com Truise.Portasoul HypeMachine
“The band draws on a vast pool of experience and virtuosic instrumental talent. Their influences are eclectic which lead s them to be able to perform a range of music to suit any audience or venue. This is also reflected in their original recorded music such as their EP “Chaos and Balance”, and their forthcoming debut album.” [bio]

Bloor Street and Pressure is an excellent psychedelic-pop track that signals the bands Fall tour which looks to launch tomorrow in Ontario, winding through the West coast of the US, all the way from Seattle down to SF and LA for Culture Collide and then presumably ending in late October just before Halloween at Halifax Pop Explosion.
