Upon listening to “Maidenhead,” the opening track off Protomartyr’s 2015 release Under Color of Official Right, I can’t help but think “yeah, these dudes definitely were definitely into The Smiths.” Which is certainly not a bad thing. And while the band retains elements of post-punk in their brand new album Relatives in Descent, it’s clear the Detroit four-piece have decided to go in a bit more of an experimental noise rock direction. The songs are less straight-forward, but give the drums an opportunity to narrate, and with vocalist Joe Casey delivering his baritone vocals reminiscent of the late Ian Curtis of Joy Division, it appears the band has found its identity. With Flasher, The Gospel Truth, $12-$15, 8pm, Paper Tiger, 2410 N. St. Mary’s St., papertigersatx.com. – Chris Conde
