The Record of the Month for April was Protomartyr’s'Under Color of Official Right' on Hardly Art.
"On their debut album No Passion All Technique, Detroit's Protomartyr excelled at crafting a post-punk onslaught that was thrillingly breakneck and oppressive, showcasing a new band capable of stomping, shredding, and obliterating. On their follow-up, Under Color of Official Right, they've cleaned up their sound a bit and sanded down a few of their rough edges without becoming tepid or tame." - Pitchfork
Other artists that received heavy play on the Drift stereo over the month were Mac Demarco, Future Islands, Teebs, Sohn, Ramona Lisa and King of the Mountains. You can read the four weekly updates we sent out in April right here; Week One | Week Two | Week Three | Week Four

After more than twenty years, and following two recent EPs and an extensive touring plot, the hugely influential and iconic Pixies mark their return with 'Indie Cindy', their first full-length album since 1991's 'Trompe le Monde'.
Recorded at Rockfield Studios, Wales with long-time producer Gil Norton ('Doolittle', 'Bossa Nova' and 'Trompe le Monde'), 'Indie Cindy' is available on gatefold heavyweight double vinyl (including CD), CD and digital download.
All artwork conceived by celebrated graphic designer Vaughan Oliver, who designed all previous Pixies album artwork (in addition to Cocteau Twins, Throwing Muses, The Breeders).
Featuring the classic Pixies recipe of soft / loud dynamics, darkly comical lyrics and insanely catchy riffs, these 12 tracks are sure to win over die hard fans and newcomers alike.
