Protomartyr vocalist Joe Casey could be called more of a realist than a skeptic, but in 2017, isn’t it basically the same thing? The Detroit quartet’s just-released fourth album, Relatives in Descent, finds Casey lamenting, amid a typically caustic pseudo-political rant, that he doesn’t “want to hear those vile trumpets anymore.” But the band never leaves you down. On the contrary, their songs, as they build to their inevitably satisfying post-punk crescendos, lift you up like a rising tide until Casey finally erupts, as he does on “Up the Tower” with a refrain of “knock it down!”
