April '14 Forecast
"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;
