"The Detroit guitar boys in Protomartyr totally nail the sound of youthful melancholy."
Rolling Stone

There is darkness in the poetry of Ultimate Success Today, Protomartyr’s fifth album. The theme of things ending, above all human existence, is present and reminiscent of Cormac McCarthy’s ‘The Road’.‘Day Without End’, the first song, sets the tone for the whole album. “This is the dawning of the day without end / when fear steps into light”. The music here sounds delicate, airy and at the same time carried by an insistent, light, metallic drum part by Alex Leonard and a punctuating bass line by Scott Davidson.There are exquisite, subtle gifts from other instruments that always heighten the guitar, instead of fighting with it. They help to create a harmonious wall of sound all of its own. This was intentional. Greg Ahee wanted to use different textures other than pedals, and the drone quality of some of those instruments colours the guitar and the whole sound with a warm, rich in reverb, yet all-consuming landscape for Joe Casey’s voice.

HEIMAT

Derrière cet alias se cachent deux personnalités bien connues des sphères underground hexagonales : Olivier Demeaux, claviériste de Cheveu, également membre du projet drone-ambient Accident du Travail, et Armelle Oberle, dont on a déjà pu entendre la voix unique chez The Dreams ou Badaboum. Heimat a surpris de nombreux auditeurs par l’originalité de ses compositions, inspirées aussi bien par la new wave et la trap-music que par les enregistrements ethnographiques d’Asie du Sud-Est. Le chant inspiré d’Armelle, aux accents approximatifs (allemand, italien) combiné aux ambiances post-wave d’Olivier, évoque X-Mal Deutschland, Malaria et, bien entendu, la grande Nico. À la fois étrange et lyrique, leur premier album s’est imposé comme un classique du genre. Heimat sort son deuxième album, Zwei, le 7 mai 2021.
